Baker Mckenzie and DKMS Donor Event
October 16 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm£40
“As part of Black History Month 2018, Baker McKenzie and DKMS will be partnering up to host a donor recruitment event on 16th October 2018 between the hours of 11am to 2pm. For many blood cancer patients a blood stem cell donation is their only chance of survival, but only half of the people diagnosed in the UK find a matching donor.
Event and Registration Details:
11:00am – 11:45am Presentation by DKMS
12:00pm – 2:00pm Registration & Donation Drive
Pre-booked time slots are available by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would be delighted to invite you to participate: If you are in general good health, between the ages of 17-55 you can become a potential blood stem cell donor. If you decide to register, it will only take 10 minutes of your time to check you are eligible, complete a consent form and give a quick cheek swab sample.
Registration Cost £40 (Baker McKenzie employees will be covered by the firm but donations can be made to the cause the drive will be geared to help the Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community primarily, as those from the BAME community are 3 times less likely to find a donor match than those from white Northern European backgrounds. We of course welcome all donors as we are committed to providing support until we find a matching donor for every person in need.”
