At PayStream we are proud to support the charity Anthony Nolan who save the lives of people with blood cancer who need bone marrow transplants. They help three people in need of a lifesaving transplant every day by using their register to find remarkable donors who are willing to donate their own bone marrow to save the life of someone they've never even met. But right now they can only find a donor for half of those in desperate need, and that's why our support is so vital.
In aid of our nominated charity we have carried out several fundraising events in the hopes of raising enough to beat last year's total of £1180.
Our events ranged from the likes of Halloween and Easter bake offs, for which PayStream employees got creative, from pumpkin cake to chocolate ghouls! We also had a silent auction where prizes such as a Manchester United tour and ice skating lessons were donated.
Our PayStream tuck shop that runs all year round is just another initiative launched to support the Anthony Nolan Trust, and to keep us in the festive spirit this year we had a Christmas Raffle at the office with some lovely chocolates and other treats as prizes!
We are constantly thinking of new ways to help raise funds for the Anthony Nolan trust. With the money we've raised, Anthony Nolan will be able to grow their donor register- and give more chances of life to people with blood cancer.
In 2013 we raised a further £1446 taking our grand total to £2626! We will continue to add to this figure to give support to such a fantastic charity. Well done PayStream team!
