Going For Gold

The Lions International Blood Research Appeal – LIBRA, Trustees are delighted to launch a new fundraising campaign for 2019 -  ‘Going for Gold’, which is supported by Dame Kelly Holmes MBE.  

LIBRA is a major Lions appeal and the official Haematology Charity for King’s College Hospital in London and the goal of this latest campaign is to raise £300,000 with the support of Lions Clubs, King’s patients and their families, and the public.

The funding will help to equip a planned new King’s Health Partners Haematology Institute at the Denmark Hill site. The LIBRA supported Haematology Institute is set to be one of the top ten blood institutes in the world and professors at King’s will use the extensive facilities to create new and improved treatments for patients with blood cancers and blood disorders. 

Please visit the LIBRA website http://www.libralionscharity.org/ to find out more about our work for King’s or follow us on Facebook @LibraCharity. Together we can help to tackle blood cancers.

At our October meeting this Lions Club agreed a donation of £500 to this campaign
