Beating blood cancer in your back yard: find out how you can support us in your area.

Heart of England Branch

Welcome to the Heart of England Branch page. We were formed in 1970 and we've been raising money to beat blood cancer ever since.

We hold lots of events in our local area, and we're always looking for new people to join our group, whether you'd like to get involved on a regular basis or just help out whenever you can. If you'd like to join us, we'd love to hear from you, so please get in touch!
