Scotmid launches Anthony Nolan charity partnership

Scotmid has launched a new ‘charity of the year’ partnership with blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan.

The year-long partnership will see nearly 5,000 staff members from over 350 stores within the group turn into ‘The Scotmid Lifesavers’ for a year, teaming up with their communities to raise a target of £200,000 for Anthony Nolan.

Malcolm Brown, head of corporate communications for Scotmid Co-operative, said: “Anthony Nolan’s vital work to find matching donors for people with blood cancer is already resonating with our staff and customers. Our partnership isn’t just about raising money – it’s also about raising awareness. This is set to be another exceptional charity partner for the Scotmid family.”

The partnership launched in Edinburgh with an event at the city’s Portobello Scotmid store on Monday. The event was attended by representatives from Scotmid and Anthony Nolan, and store employees dressed up in ‘Scotmid Lifesavers’ capes to pledge their support for the lifesaving partnership.  

Also taking part were broadcaster and writer Hardeep Singh Kohli and myelodysplastic syndrome patient Ally Boyle, a retired firefighter who will eventually need a bone marrow transplant.

Hardeep Singh Kohli added: “As an Anthony Nolan supporter and a Scotmid customer I am keen to support this partnership. Bizarrely, when the team at Anthony Nolan called me to ask me to get involved, I was actually doing some shopping in Scotmid! I am sure this partnership will prove to make a life-changing difference for people with blood cancer, and I am glad Scotmid is supporting such a worthwhile cause.”
