'Ayesha Appeal' raises £172,000 for cancer charity

Categories: Latest News

Friday March 01 2013

The Daily Record covers the courageous story of eight year old Ayesha Siddiqui who has been nominated for the Daily Record Our Heroes Award.

Ayesha, a leukaemia patient, has, with the help of her parents, raised £172,000 for the bone marrow charity, Anthony Nolan, making her “one of the biggest single fundraisers in the history of the charity”.

Ayesha’s parents are trying to encourage people from all backgrounds to sign up for the bone marrow donor register but are “particularly keen to recruit ethnic minority donors as they are under-represented”.
