Raising for Anthony Nolan, which works to save the lives of people with blood cancer through their donor register by securing donations of blood stem cells or bone marrow to provide vital transplants, Xercise4Less is supporting the charity's world-class research.

Members and non-members alike are also invited to nominate ‘#mygymhero’ by explaining why their friend, relative, or partner deserves to win a supercar experience for two people as well as goodies from Scitec Nutrition to help fuel their gym journey.Nominations can be made online at www.xercise4less.co.uk/hero between the 5th and the 11th June, while registrations for the three-day pass can be made online at www.xercise4less.co.uk/3daypass.

Tim Weir, General Manager at Xercise4Less Burnley, said: “It is a pleasure to be partnering with Anthony Nolan again, they are a fantastically worthy organisation and we look forward to raising funds whilst welcoming new visitors to the gym.”

Heather Addicott, Corporate Partnerships Coordinator at Anthony Nolan, added: “The support shown to Anthony Nolan from the Xercise4Less Burnley community to date has been fantastic, and we are delighted to partner with them yet again.

"The money raised will help fund Anthony Nolan’s pioneering research into stem cell transplantation," Heather continued. "[It will] allow us to add more people to the donor register, and mean we can be there for every person in need of a transplant.

“By tying in with Men’s Health Week, we hope that this promotion will encourage more young men to join the Anthony Nolan donor register."

Young men make up just 16% of the register, with Anthony Nolan asking more to sign up at www.anthonynolan.org to make sure that they can find a donor for every person in need of a transplant.
