A LEISURE centre is hosting a stem cell donor recruitment day.

Fareham Leisure Centre – operated by Everyone Active in partnership with Fareham Borough Council - is holding the event on Wednesday from 4pm to 9pm in a bid to find lifesaving donors for those suffering with blood cancers.

It has been organised by the team at Fareham Leisure Centre in support of their colleague Chris Spencer who underwent a stem cell transplant through the Anthony Nolan charity after being diagnosed with bone marrow failure in June 2013.

Anyone aged 18 to 30 and in good health can become a donor. Participants just need to drop into the centre on the day, fill in a form and provide a saliva sample. Call 01329 233652 or visit everyoneactive.com.
