Anthony Nolan

The Shetland Football Association is encouraging all members to attend these events, register for the Anthony Nolan foundation, and help find donors for those in need of  blood and bone marrow transplants. The charity is visiting Shetland this weekend at the behest of the family of 6 year old James Hawick, from Nesting. James has aplastic anemia and needs to find a suitable bone marrow donor in order to save his life.

Ideally, donors are males between the ages of 16 and 30. That falls pretty well within the Football community here in Shetland, and it could be someone in your team who proves to be a match for James or any otherperson requiring a transfer.  Go along to the events – in Clickimin, Cunningsburgh and Brae, and do your bit.
