We are Donors

We Are Donors Cambridge: Organ donation awareness event
“I have received the most amazing gift from somebody I never met and never will… Her heart is beating inside me and will power the life ahead of me, from my smallest steps to my wildest dreams.”
Golpira Mirzazadeh suffered from a heart disease for 14 years, eventually being prevented from leading a normal life. She was given the gift of life when a stranger donated her heart, and now she is helping raise awareness about organ donation.
Join us for an evening talk and Q&A session with Golpira to hear more of her story and learn what it’s like to live with someone else’s heart beating in your chest.

Redboy and Blackboy Movember

This year, both the St. John’s men’s rugby and football teams will be taking part in Movember. Movember raises money to tackle male health issues such as Prostate Cancer (the second most common cancer in men worldwide) and testicular cancer (the most common cancer in men under 40). It also raises awareness of mental health among men, with 1 in 8 men in the UK having experienced a mental health problem and 75% of suicides are men.

This year, the Redboys and Blackboys will be trying to make a difference, so please tolerate the questionable facial hair and donate at the link below.
