Scottish Fire and Rescue representative Dougie Campbell gave a presentation to all S5 Pupils on Monday about Anthony Nolan and the excellent work the charity does.  23 S5 pupils agreed to become Champions and have been encouraging staff and pupils to register to become STEM cell donors to help people who have blood cancer.  This has been going on all day today. The response of pupils has been fantastic!
