All fundraising on behalf of the Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust or donation to the Trust is extremely gratefully received.
You can make a difference and take part in the annual overseas walk 2013.
We are constantly funding different projects, the big project for this year is contributing to the renovation of the 21 en-suite bathrooms in the Burkitt unit. These badly need to be updated after 10 years of nearly 100% occupancy.
We are constantly looking at ways of increasing our accommodation for patients who are outside commuting distance of the hospital. The apartments are always in demand, in truth we could easily fill twice as many as we have. These apartments are allocated to patients for those times when they must be near the hospital but do not need to be inpatients.
The stress and strain on families and individuals going through the process before and after transplant is enormous especially if there is no family or extended family with whom they can stay within commuting distance of the hospital. The Trust will always try to help those people who are worse affected in whatever way they can.
We will also fund one of the nurses, and from time to time will fund research which directly affects the treatment of leukaemia, lymphoma and myleomas.
Donations may be from individual fundraisers (see our section of ideas on how to get involved) these can be great fun and allow you to include your friends and family. They maybe bequests or legacies see below, or they may be a simple gift.

Gifts in wills help fund more than a third of our services - we simply couldn't do what we do without them.
By remembering the Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust in your will you can provide a lasting gift to the people of Ireland. A gift in your will can make a vital difference to someone living with a cancerous blood disorder in the future. Remember leaving a legacy does not have to be a big donation, small gestures can make a big difference to us. When we receive a gift we ensure that the wishes of the deceased are carried out with care and respect.
There are three types of charitable legacies:-
- A pecuniary legacy is a gift of a specific amount of money.
- A residuary legacy is a share of the rest of your asset that you have not already committed. So it is a percentage of your estate.
- A specific legacy is a gift of a specific asset.
If you already have made a will and wish to include a gift to the Bone Marrow for Leukaemia Trust you can simply add a codicil (addition) this can be easily done by your solicitor. If you have not yet prepared a will, simply contact your solicitor. Making a will is easy and inexpensive. We are extremely grateful for any amount we receive and can guarantee your gift will help families and patients of leukaemia, myeloma, lymphoma and related diseases.
