Welcome to Blood Cancer UK in Yorkshire!
We're always keen to hear from people who want to find out more about us and our activity in Yorkshire - perhaps you'd like to fundraise, volunteer, or are interested in our research?
Our events are fun and rewarding, and we're always on the lookout for enthusiastic people to give a bit of their time - taking part, volunteering, or even organising their own events to help beat blood cancer. If that sounds like you, please get in touch!
We have some fantastic long-term supporters in Yorkshire, groups and individuals, organising many events and other fundraising activity.
You might want to get involved in one of our new Community Groups, being the local face of Blood Cancer UK in your area. Or, you might want to give some of your time to place collection tins in your local area. However you might like to join in, we'd love to hear from you!
