Flying Pig Hostel | About

Charities We Support


Team Margot Image

Team Margot campaigns for more people to join the worldwide registers as potential bone marrow/stem cell donors, especially people from ethnic minorities or those with a mixed heritage.

Team Margot launched Margot’s donor appeal on Christmas Eve 2013 and has been credited with having run the most high profile global donor appeal anywhere in the world, embracing national and international TV, radio, print, online, outdoor media and Virgin America flights. Within the first 6 weeks of launch the charity, Delete Blood Cancer UK received over 50,000 requests for swab kits in the UK alone.

The Team Margot Foundation aims to increase the number of potential bone marrow donors in the UK by encouraging 2.2 million people to sign up by this time next year: they need 900k more to achieve this so let’s help make this happen.
