In April 2013 we held our first Impact Day.  The event was a departure from our traditional Annual Conference.  Over the course of the day patients, supporters, fundraisers and staff were taken on an emotional journey, from the charity's beginnings in the 1960s, right through to where we are today and what our future holds.

Our aim was to share our shared history, our passion and our belief.  From the interactive exhibtion to thought provoking and emotional speakers the day imparted a sense of family, community and also the urgency for our cause.  

The charity has come a long way over the last 53 years.  Impact Day not only helped to remind us of how we have come from, but also focussed on how much more we need to do for blood cancer patients.

The video below offers viewers an insight into the day and is a reminder to all those that took part of what a truly special day  it was.
