For the 2019 fundraising year, TEP are supporting The Bloom Appeal.
TEP Senior GIS and Environmental Consultant, Amanda Plumb and her daughters have already got the fundraising off to a fantastic start by taking part in the Liverpool Kids 1k, raising a brilliant £185 so far! If you would like to make a donation we have a Just Giving page here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/tepbloomappeal
We ❤️ seeing our blood cancer research scientists smile. They did today when the new light box arrived from us. It’s a tiny piece of equipment but this pocket rocket is essential to allow them to view proteins and DNA, and will be used routinely every day. Thanks to all our supporters who help us and our scientists.
We received a lovely letter and donation from Lily Grace & Emma Rose in memory of their super mum, Sandra. The girls were sponsored for the 1k at the Liverpool Spring 10k, 5k, Kids 1k and then they visited mum Amanda at TEP - The Environment Partnership to sell our pin badges. Keep up the good work girls and thank you for supporting us so well.
Another amazing donation has been received from the Liverpool Provincial Club. Local children participated in multiple activities that helped raise a whopping £1,000! We are extremely grateful for this generous donation and hope the children had lots of fun along the way. Awesome work, well done!

We are very happy to say that for the next year we will be supporting our local Liverpool Blood Diseases Bank for leukaemia and lymphoma research. For nearly 30 years they have collected material from patients who have kindly donated samples for research. Biobank manager, Dr Melanie Oates (pictured) said that they are thrilled by the Bloom Appeal's support as the samples they collect are currently being used in approx 20 projects in the research labs. Also pictured are some of the items required to collect and process these samples.
This is Jenny. Jenny is an MLA Associate Practitioner in the Immunophentoyping Lab at the Royal. Every week they receive in excess of 100 patient samples and an average of 5 slides for each sample is stored. Part of Jenny's work is preparing the slides for curating and archiving. Its a big job but the Bloom Appeal has bought Jenny a machine that will help her lots so she can spend her time helping diagnose blood malignancies. Jenny is very happy...and so are we. Thanks to all our supporters who helped us help Jen!
