Our Partners

We thank last year’s GOLD Partner: time:matters. Learn more about this life-saving courier company here.

We also thank last year’s SILVER Partners: Royale International, Be The Match and Gift of Life Marrow Registry. Read more about them below.

Without the support of our partners we wouldn’t be able to create the impact we aspire. We are immensely grateful for their generous contributions to our cause to ensure patients worldwide in need of a stem cell transplant have access to high quality cells from donors whose rights and safety are protected. We therefore thank all other organisations that actively participate in World Marrow Donor Day:

Royale International

Royale International is a dedicated company providing a wide range of business-to-business services since 1993.
From very humble beginnings back in their original Kowloon Bay office in 1993 through to present day, they have undergone a tremendous journey that has seen them become one of the world’s leading privately-owned logistics companies.

Their two founders, John Fawcett and Dean Locke, began the company by undertaking deliveries themselves across the city and instilling the work ethic that remains in effect today.

The early 2000’s saw rapid expansion of their network across the globe and Royale is now represented by 42 offices across the globe.
