Donor drive in memory of little Margot Martini

A donor drive to get 1,000 people signed up to the bone marrow and stem cell register is to take place in memory of an inspirational toddler.


The 'Swab. Save a Life' day at Coleridge Primary School in Highgate London is inspired by two-year-old Margot Martini - who died after a year long fight with two rare forms of leukaemia.

Margot, whose mum Vicki is from Essington, touched the lives of millions across the world with a mass celebrity-backed campaign to find a bone marrow donor needed to save her life.

The school in Highgate will hold its swabbing day on Saturday January 17 (2015).

The aim is to help save the lives of those who, like Margot and her family, never thought they would need a bone marrow transplant.

The event will include a full of activities for all ages, fundraising fun and a raffle to celebrate Margot's short life and a long lasting legacy.
