HUDDERSFIELD folk have helped the Examiner boost a charity fund to the tune of £1,291.
People made donations in aid of the Anthony Nolan Trust at June’s Examiner Community Awards, where we recognised the dedicated and hardworking members of the community.
And we’re thrilled to donate £1,291.73 to a charity which is close to our hearts.
The charity was important to former Examiner journalist Adrian Sudbury, who lost his fight against leukaemia in 2008.
Sudders inspired thousands through his Baldy’s Blog and was the inspiration behind a campaign, which the Anthony Nolan Trust have continued in its Register and Be a Lifesaver project to educate more people about all forms of donation.
And one of Adrian’s former colleagues at the Examiner, Katie Campling, is now a co-ordinator with the Anthony Nolan Trust’s Register and Be A Lifesaver. She was presented with the donation by the Examiner’s Natasha Maskery, senior marketing executive.
