I am the top google search for Natalie Torbett's aalllllll oovvveeerrr the google network whoop whoop! Yay. I'm also hopefully going to get a piece published in the next issue of Behind the thoroughly exciting!
After officially arranging my placement with the charity CLIC Sargent, I rapidly found myself being asked to get involved with various fund and awareness rasing events.
In fact here is one in particular that you the readers may be interested in attending or at least spreading the word and showing support....

Carr Manor Y11 Prince’s Trust xl pupils have taken on a project to raise awareness about the Anthony Nolan Trust. The reason for this is to increase numbers on the Bone Marrow Register and promote the work they do for Leukaemia.
Leukaemia affects thousands of people each year and is by far the largest killer of young people out of all the cancers.
The Anthony Nolan Trust are an organisation striving to raise awareness and increase the number of people on the Bone Marrow Donor Register. Without a donor match many young people die from Leukaemia. Finding a match is a lifeline for many young people suffering from Leukaemia. Unfortunately there are not enough people on the Bone Marrow Donor Register, therefore finding a perfect match is a long and difficult task which can involve searching worldwide.
Searching worldwide takes precious time which is something a sufferer does not have. Unfortunately for some it can be too little too late.
The xl pupils are organising an open event for people in the local community and further a field to come to the school to find out more, spread the word, raise money and more importantly increase the number of people currently on the Bone Marrow Donor register.
The event is to take place at Carr Manor High School on Wednesday 12th December 2007, 5.00 – 8.00pm
On the night there will be all the information you need to help you make the important decision to register on the Bone Marrow donor Register and qualified staff from the Anthony Nolan Trust will be there to guide you through the process.
Theoretically anyone could be the match for one of the 7,000 patients currently waiting for a transplant. In fact, you might be the only person in the world with compatible tissue-type for a patient with a life-threatening illness.
Please come and support this event and give someone the gift of life.
