Please help save the ACLT(African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust) from closing

The ACLT (African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust) is in crisis and needs your help. Please help if you can by donating and spreading the word. The following is from their website:

From humble beginnings, we started when there were just a few hundred people from the Ethnic Minority groups registered as potential bone marrow donors. Over the years we have fought tooth and nail to keep the ACLT going on a shoe string and have achieved some amazing things with the help of our supporters. Due to our collective efforts the numbers of potential bone marrow donors, blood donors has increased by tens of thousands and life saving matches have been found. More recently we have started to encourage and recruit more organ donors
Together we have helped to save lives...many, many lives, and this work is now in severe jeopardy.

How you can Help

We appreciate these are difficult times for everyone, but truly believe in the community spirit that has brought us together over the years will prevail
As the saying goes a mighty river starts with a single drop, If everyone can make a contribution in some way, however small, together we can raise £80K or more in time
Imagine if 5,000 people gave £5 a month for 3 months = £75,000 + Gift Aid = £96,000
