Welcome to the Driving For Charity fundraising web page. We are fund raising for two charities, The Anthony Nolan Trust - saving the lives of people with blood cancer and The Stroke Association – providing support to stroke victims and their families. Also, providing support and raising awareness for the Rik Basra - Save A Life Campaign for leukaemia sufferers.

We will be travelling from the UK’s most southern part - Land's End (Cornwall), to the UK's most northern part John O’Groat’s (Scotland). The whole journey is approximately 2,500 miles (round trip from Birmingham) and will take around 12 days to complete. We will be going cross-country and passing through many cities and tourist attractions on the route. Raising awareness is extremely important and we would like as many people, as we can possibly get to sign up to the donor register for the Anthony Nolan Trust. We especially need people from the Asian/Afro-Caribbean and other ethnic communities to join, as there is currently an acute shortage of donors from these communities for the Anthony Nolan Trust.

We hope that you will participate in this good cause and help us to reach our goal of raising awareness amongst all communities, as well as helping us towards reaching our fund-raising target.

In the meantime, we encourage you to visit the following websites, where you will find more information and the important work these charities perform. For the Stroke Association visit www.stroke.org.uk The Anthony Nolan Trust visit www.anthonynolan.org. Please also visit www.rikbasra.com where you’ll be able to read Rik Basra’s story, his successful blood stem cell transplant, the work of the Rik Basra :- Save A Life Campaign. 

We would like to leave you all with one last thought, every 23 minutes a child or an adult is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every 5 minutes, someone suffers a stroke, even babies. By partnering up with The Anthony Nolan Trust, The Stroke Association and the Rik Basra : Save A Life Campaign, you will be supporting a cause that is in immense need of attention within our community.
