BE INSPIRED Ideas and tips on how to fund our lifesaving work
You probably already know that we save the lives of people with blood cancers or disorders who are in desperate need of bone marrow transplants.
What you might not know, however, is that for every person we can find the right donor for, there’s another we can’t. Which is why your help is so important.
By raising money, you’ll help make sure we find more precious donors, make more precious matches – and save even more precious lives.
And the great thing is, however much time you can spare, whatever you’re in to, there’s a way you can get those lifesaving pounds pouring in.
Got any questions? Then we’d love to answer them. Get in touch on 0303 303 3002 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
HELLO, LIFESAVER First things first – thank you so much for choosing to raise money for Anthony Nolan.

BOOst yOur FUNDRAISING
Set up a fundraising page online An online page is a great way to let supporters know what you’re up to, and makes it quick and easy for them to donate.
And the good news is setting one up is a piece of cake. Just visit www.virginmoneygiving.com/charities/ anthonynolan or www.justgiving.com/ anthonynolan and follow the simple steps.
Matched giving A lot of companies match what their employees raise, pound for pound. So make sure you ask yours.
Gift Aid it Believe it or not, we love the taxman. Why? Because through Gift Aid, for every £1 someone donates, the government will chip in an extra 25p, at no extra cost to you. Simply ask any supporters who are UK taxpayers to tick the Gift Aid box on your online page or paper form.
