Staff picked the charity after it helped a colleague's wife

Zyro raises over £5,000 for Anthony Nolan Trust

Zyro raised over £5,000 for the Anthony Nolan Trust during 2014.

Claire Stewart, wife of Zyro employee Dave Stewart, became unwell in 2012 and was told she would need a bone marrow transplant. The Anthony Nolan Trust quickly found a 95 per cent stem cell match which meant Claire’s lifesaving treatment could begin.

Dave’s Zyro colleagues were inspired to make the Anthony Nolan Trust one of their chosen charities for 2014 and raised a grand total of £5,055.59 for the trust, which will help to add another 50 people to the donor register.

Will Connolly, head of corporate partnerships and special events at Anthony Nolan, said: "We are very grateful to the staff at Zyro Ltd for raising so much money for Anthony Nolan. All the valuable funds they have raised will go towards helping us to save the lives of more people with blood cancer and blood disorders."

Jo Buckton, regional manager for Anthony Nolan, visited the Zyro offices on February 4th to accept the cheque on behalf of the trust.
