Airline Flies to Trust’s Rescue

PASSENGERS flying with a budget airline are being encouraged to donate their loose change to help recruit life-saving donors for a leading charity.

Leukaemia charity the Anthony Nolan Trust has teamed up with easyJet to help save hundreds of lives throughout Europe.

The airline has already raised GBP 1.3 million with its in- flight collections, enabling the charity to recruit around 18,000 new life-saving donors to its bone marrow register.
