WORKERS at Heathrow's Terminal 5 project set a record when more than 400 of them rolled up their sleeves to give a blood sample for the Anthony Nolan Trust, which had a previous record for donations of 200 in one day.
The event was organised to help find a suitable donor for Sian Willbourne ? friend of T5 supply chain manager Sarah Waltho.
Sian was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia last June and her only hope of a cure is a bone marrow transplant.
Mike Evans, T5 head of health and safety, said: 'We were delighted to have been able to help Sian and the many other sufferers of leukaemia by hosting this day.
'I feel very proud that so many T5 workers came forward to donate and I hope that we will able to find a suitable match for Sian.'
