Appeal | Fight for Francis

22 August 2023

Carpenters Group are launching an appeal as one of our colleagues has a new born baby son who has sadly been diagnosed with Leukaemia. His best chance of survival is finding a donor match for an urgently needed stem cell transplant.

It’s an incredibly upsetting time and we desperately want to find a donor match for the family. We are circulating details of Anthony Nolan – Saving the Lives of People with Blood Cancer, a charitable organisation matching potential donors and recipients.

Francis's family were given the devastating news on August 9 and told his best chance of survival is having a bone marrow transplant from a donor who is a 10 out of 10 match with him.

How to get involved:

If you feel you would like to try and help find a match please read more about the matching process that Anthony Nolan undertake and consider joining their register to help the Fight for Francis by visiting
