Register & be a Lifesaver Education Programme - ASSET
ASSET is the Adrian Sudbury Schools’ Education Trust. Adrian Sudbury was a 27-year-old journalist who died of Leukaemia. Adrian’s dying wish was that every 16-18 year-old could be taught the facts about blood, stem cell and organ donation.
Asset delivers the Register & Be a Lifesaver Education Programme (R&BE) to 6th Form Students in the East Midlands. It delivers the programme in 135 schools and colleges.
Louise & Mick Wilson from Adrian Sudbury Schools Education Trust visited Huxlow Science College on Thursday 25th April and gave an informative and engaging talk to our Y12s and Y13s about blood, stem cell and organ donation. Most students were not aware that were already old enough eligible to join the registers.
The detailed talk based on the speakers own experiences changed the views of many of the students. Louise said that “our students were a delight to talk to, attentive and respectful.”
Since 2009, ASSET have delivered over 4,000 presentations, resulting in over 14,000 registered blood donors, 24,000 new recruits to Anthony Nolan’s stem cell register, and 7,000 new potential organ donors.
"We grow to meet the needs of our wider community who trust and value the school"
