Conference Charity

The charity chosen by the BGS committee continues to be Harvey's Gang.

Harvey's Gang provides ill children with tours of the blood transfusion and other laboratories.

Harvey's gang started with Harvey Buster Baldwin, who passed away on October 6, 2014. Harvey became ill with acute myeloid leukaemia at age six. He ended up spending many weeks in hospital. Whilst spending time at Worthing Hospital, (West Sussex, England) Harvey was curious about the vacuum air tube which would take his blood to Pathology. The children's ward arranged for Harvey to visit the laboratories.

Harvey enjoyed his time in the laboratories and got to wear a lab coat and badge with trainee biomedical scientist written on it. His mum said “He really enjoyed his tour,” His father added “To give him that insight was absolutely marvellous and it made him, as well as us, understand why it takes so long to process blood.” A year later Harvey sadly lost his battle with leukaemia.
