Start your New Year with a good deed!

14th December 2015


Pay it Forward and start your New Year with a good deed!

As you're thinking about breaking up for Christmas, New Year and the party season, how about committing to start the New Year with a good deed that will directly help patients suffering with blood cancer?

We are asking you to think about donating your first hour's salary to a great cause which is helping save lives and transforming the treatment of blood cancers around the world through research trials conducted in Birmingham and across the Midlands. 

For every £ donated, the pharma companies put in £10 of free next generation drugs, so a £10 donation transforms into a £100 good deed!

By donating your first hour's salary, you could be giving someone the best New Year possible - time with their friends and family that otherwise wouldn't happen!


If you want to start your New Year with a Good Deed, please go to and make your donation here (the site lets you keep your name/ donation amount hidden if you'd prefer it):
