Last Thursday, DCGS students were introduced to the incredible work undertaken by the Anthony Nolan charity. Students were encouraged to become potential lifesavers as part of a campaign to educate young people about blood, organ, and stem cell donation.

The charity was founded in 1974 by Shirley Nolan whose son Anthony was in urgent need of a bone marrow transplant. Today the register has over 720,000 potential donors on it.

The organisation thanked the school for its 'fantastic support', and highlighted the importance of 'dispelling myths surrounding donation'.

This is the first year our school has hosted a presentation from Anthony Nolan’s education programme, The Hero Project, and we achieved a record high of 93 students participating.

It is humbling to have been given the opportunity to engage with such transformative work. For more information, do visit their website below, or speak to one of the Sixth Form welfare ambassadors.
