Northamptonshire to take part in donor event for young girl

Northamptonshire officers will take part in a donor event to help a 5 year old girl find a bone marrow match.

On Friday, charity Anthony Nolan, will be visiting two police stations in the county to get as many officers and staff tested and on the stem cell register as possible. They will be at Weston Favell between 2pm and 4pm and the Northern Accommodation Hub between 4.30pm and 6.30pm.

The event was organised by Inspector Beth Warren who had come across the story on social media of a young girl from Corby – Florence Bark.

Florence, aged 5, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia – a rare form of blood cancer.

Her parents have launched a social media campaign #bemorefab to try and raise money for treatment, as well as find her a bone marrow transplant match – currently there is no one on the register who is a complete match.

Inspector Warren said to Police Oracle: “Nationally we’ve got a workforce who want to help people.”

She explained that she had approached CC Nick Adderley with the request and that he was fully supportive.

“When I heard about Florence, I wanted to do as much as possible to raise awareness of her story and to help her and her family to raise the money needed to get her the treatment she requires,” Insp Warren said.

“Hopefully the events we’ve organised for this Friday will get as many officers and staff on the stem cell register as possible and there will also be collection buckets as well to add to the treatment fund.

“As the parent of a young girl myself, I honestly cannot imagine what Stacey and Andrew are going through. They are an incredibly brave family and I hope as many people as possible read about Florence so that no stone is left unturned in the goal of making this little girl better.”
