Last weekend we held the National Marrow AGM in Leeds, we had over 250 marrow members from across the country come to Leeds to share ideas, get inspiration, and celebrate the previous year of Marrow. There were many highlights of the weekend including an inspirational talk from stem cell recipient Johnny and his donor Sean (pictured); what an amazing pair, an update on all things Anthony Nolan from the lovely Anthony Nolan team, and some brilliant workshops for the committees to get stuck into!
Saturday night saw the annual dinner and prize giving, followed by throwing some shapes in Halo! Leeds Marrow were honoured to receive the "Outstanding Contribution to Donor Recruitment Award" for our efforts in signing over 2300 people up last year.
We'd like to say a massive thank you to all the speakers, people who ran workshops and people who attended for making it such a brilliant weekend, here's to next year!
