Henley Round Table

ROUND Table is urging men aged 16 to 30 to join the Anthony Nolan stem cell donor register.

ROUND Table is urging men aged 16 to 30 to join the Anthony Nolan stem cell donor register.

The charity matches individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people with blood cancer and blood disorders who desperately need lifesaving transplants.

In 1986, Round Table clubs across the UK and Ireland were instrumental in adding 100,000 new names to the register.

Now, 30 years later, Round Table clubs are teaming up with the charity again, this time targeting young men.

As a young men’s organisation, the club hopes we can encourage more of them to join the donor register.



Most people have a one in 900 chance of being chosen to donate but young men have a one in 200 chance. What many people don’t realise is how simple it is to join the stem cell register — it involves filling in a form and providing a saliva sample.

Of those who go on to donate, about 90 per cent will do so through peripheral blood stem cell collection. This is a straightforward process, carried out as an outpatient procedure.

Round Table was founded in the UK in 1927 and is the world’s largest male-only member organisation with associations in more than 50 countries.

It is open to men aged 18 to 45, providing opportunities to make new friends, try new activities and support the local community.

With more than 400 clubs in Britain and Ireland, Round Table encourages people to try more, play more and learn more.
