The branch was started in 1988 in order to raise awareness in the local community about the importance of Leukaemia Research and the good work that was undertaken by the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research Fund. Since its launch, the branch has raised over £1,000,000 and has helped to provide vital resources and equipment to local hospitals.

How You Can Help Us
Since our branch started in 1988 a great deal of money has been raised and we are getting closer to the the significant milestone of having raised a million pounds. All this is thanks to a very small hard working committee as well as a team of regular volunteers, however we do need more help to carry on this vital work. There are several ways in which you can support us:
If you would like to make a donation then please contact us.
Attend an Event
Our events are only successful because of the people who join in and support us. If you enjoy the outdoors then you may want to participate in our Fun Run or Forget Me Not Walk, if you prefer to be mentally taxed rather than physically then please come to one of our popular quiz nights. Should you be a music lover then you would certainly enjoy our concert evenings. A full list of upcoming events can be found on the events page.
Help at Store Collections
We regularly collect money at local supermarkets and are always grateful for any help, so if you can spare an hour or two and would like to help at one of our future collections then please get in touch.
Volunteer at Events
If you would like to help out at any of our events such as the Fun Run or Forget Me Not Walk then please let us know.
Coupons, Foreign Currency and Stamps
Each year we raise a considerable amount of money from collecting these, so if you can help please contact us. We would like to thank those schools and companies, which regularly support us.
Tombola and Raffle Prizes
Your unwanted gifts could be our prizes of the future! If you are clearing out your cupboards and find suitable items, please contact Francoise on 01527 876234 or Nicole.
Placing Collection Boxes
If you have a friendly local pub that would be happy to have one of our collection boxes behind the bar then please let us know. We can also supply them for your place of work or other establishments.
Join our Committee
Would you be interested in joining our enthusiastic and hard working committee? Meetings are held only every 2 or 3 months. Do contact us if you can help, we are grateful for any amount of time you can spare.
