Baden Clegg our first team manager and club stalwart along with his wife Claire are reaching out to the Woodford family for assistance.

Their good friend Anne Juliff has a rare form of blood cancer and needs urgent help as she searches for potential stem cell donors to arrest her blood cancer, Myelofibrosis. Anne is supported by her husband Brian who was a professional rugby league player, played for Wales and is the current Chair of World Rugby League.

None of the current stem cell banks throughout Europe have a match and time for Anne is running out. The chances of a match for Anne and others is extremely rare but the more volunteers who come forward the greater the chance of a match.

Woodford Rugby Club will be hosting a registration event on Thursday 21st September from 4pm and are looking for as many young volunteers aged 16-30. This age range is dictated by the Anthony Nolan Trust charity who are organising the event.

Registration involves a Covid test style swab and supplying some contact details. Your test results are stored and if found to be a match you will be contacted to discuss next steps.

Thank you in advance for your support. Any questions please contact: 07833053803
