One of Adrian’s many greatest achievements was being a lifelong blood donor, in which he received his gold pin in 2013, just before being diagnosed with his illness. He could never have known how much he would come to rely on the vital help from the NIBTS that gave him the strength in his battle against Leukaemia.

Adrian encouraged many of his friends to become donors, during his illness, to help not only himself, but others in similar situations.

In Adrian’s memory we encourage you to do something amazing and sign up today and donate blood.
