Charity night raises over £5k for Leukaemia sufferers

18 Oct 2017

Dan Niblock from Bootle and his family and friends have raised over £5k at a recent charity event for the Anthony Nolan Trust. The pioneering charity saves the lives of people with blood cancer.

In 2013, Dan’s brother, Tom, was diagnosed with Leukaemia at the age of 22 and received a life-saving bone marrow transplant. He has since made a full recovery and next year will run the London Marathon to raise money for the charity.

Dan’s family has been keen to support anyone in a similar position by fundraising for the Anthony Nolan Trust, which provides a register to match potential stem cell donors to blood cancer patients in need of a bone marrow transplant.

The fundraising was also supported by a donation of £300 by Dan’s employer, local pension services provider, MyCSP, from their Community Fund.

Dan Niblock said; “This is the forth year we have run an event and have so far raised over £30k in total. We are extremely grateful for all the support and donations including the £300 from my employer MyCSP. Every penny raised goes to the Anthony Nolan Trust to help them save the lives of people like my brother Tom”.

David Boardman, Communications Director, MyCSP said; “We were very happy to provide a donation to such an important charity that makes such a difference to many families around the world.”

The MyCSP Community Fund was launched three years ago to support local causes and has so far donated over £40,000 to 85 different fundraising campaigns.
