WE ARE A BLOOD CANCER CHARITY
WITH YOUR HELP
WE CAN TACKLE BLOOD DISORDERS & CANCERS
We are the Lions International Blood Research Appeal (LIBRA) and our sole purpose is fundraising for the Haematology Department at King’s College Hospital in London, benefiting patients with blood cancers and a range of blood disorders. We reply on support of the public, King’s patients and their families, and Lions Clubs across the UK to raise vital funds.
Blood disorders and blood cancers affect people of all ages and with our help King’s can provide patients with the best care and treatments available, ultimately saving more lives. The funds we raise help to ensure that new and improved treatments can be created for patients in the UK and overseas. Donations are also used to cover the cost of ward and laboratory developments, along with state-of-the art equipment that is vital in the treatment process.
We are currently working hard to raise £300,000 for our ‘Going for Gold Campaign’ and we are nearly half way to reaching our target! Please support us – together we can make a difference.

Founded in 1976, we are the only charity which solely campaigns for the world-renowned haematology laboratories and wards at King’s, including the ELF and LIBRA Ward and the Davidson Ward.
Our Trustees work closely with the hospital’s haematology team to ensure their funding requirements are met. With our support, they can provide first class patient care and develop and trial new treatments for patients with blood cancers and other serious disorders. Treatments created at King’s benefit people in the UK and around the world.Watch The Video
