Make uni the best years of your life with marrow! - A society that helps save lives.

We are a student-run branch of Anthony Nolan, a charity which matches patients with blood cancers and disorders to donors all over the world who can give them a life-saving stem cell transplant. There aren't enough donors on the register, so that’s where we come in. We run events at the union’s, both SHU and UoS campuses, student accommodation, gyms, halls, festivals, pride (loads of really fun events!) where we get people to join the stem cell register. It costs our charity, Anthony Nolan, to put people onto the stem cell register, so we also hold fundraisers to help make it possible.

How Marrow will benefit you:

  • Charity work looks good on your CV - Increases professional development.
  • We are flexible - no minimum time requirements, you can do an hour here and there.
  • We get to go to lots of fun events - Festivals, fairs, sporting events, etc.
  • You learn valuable transferable skills - It’s all about going out and talking to the public, explaining things well: it really improves your communication skills A LOT. 
  • Marrow can help you get into medical school, get scientific, management jobs/placements.
  • There's something for everyone - donor recruitment, fundraisers, and lots of socials throughout the year.
  • Make new friends from both SHU and UoS
  • We save lives - The most important reason. You will have a direct impact on peoples lives, each person you register could save someone's life.
