Wyggeston And Queen Elizabeth I CollegeWow ! we requited an amazing 576 students to the Anthony Nolan registry... thats a new all time record for highest single day college event. It was a vibrant fun day with staff and students dancing to bangra and jazz music whilst they signed up! We actually ran out of kits...

There are so many people to thank, we were made to feel so welcome by everyone. A big thanks to the college principal, Sandra Hamilton-Fox and our chief college contact Helen Bull who worked so hard to make the day a success. The day would not have been possible of course with out our 150+ student volunteers, well done everyone, you are record breakers! ...the biggest thanks goes to all those who registered, they are all potential lifesavers.

But the day was more than just recruiting donors it was such a fun experience with entertainment provided by students throughout the day, honestly the day was over too soon. A big thanks to Satwinder of Maz Records and the dhol players for their fantastic energy and support they provided the music mix and really got the party going... Last but not least the student Jazz band, they were absolutely brilliant and so talented, we could have listened to them all day.
