Anthony Nolan's 2023 Strategy

I'm pleased to share Anthony Nolan's new vision and strategy document. We hope this is helpful for those supporting Anthony Nolan's work, for those whose lives have been affected by bloodcancer, and, once again, encourage young people, especially from ethnic minorities, to sign up to the Stem Cell register to help save a life.

Great Daffodil Appeal

Bill Kidd MSP lent his support to Marie Curie’s largest fundraising appeal month, the iconic Great Daffodil Appeal, at an event in the Scottish Parliament. 

Meeting with staff and volunteers from Marie Curie, Mr Kidd heard about the care and support that is provided to people living with terminal illness, their families and carers across Scotland. 

The leading end of life charity supported over 8,600 terminally ill people across Scotland in their own homes and at its two Scottish hospices during 2021/22. In Glasgow, over 5,500 visits were made by the charity’s Community Nursing Service to support people in the comfort of their own homes. 

Supporting the Great Daffodil Appeal, which started in 1986, by donating and wearing a daffodil pin in March helps Marie Curie to continue providing vital palliative and end of life care and support.

Brain Tumour Research

I was pleased to meet with volunteers and researchers from 'Brain Tumour Research' who are raising awareness of this very common cancer, which is the most prolific in people under the age of 40. They are hoping to raise public awareness of this cancer and are advocating for more funding to go into brain tumour research, so more lives can be saved with early intervention.
