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 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. Donations are used to cover the cost of ward and laboratory developments, along with state-of-the art equipment that is vital in the treatment process.
Due to Covid-19 we are encouraging supporters to raise funds online, take up personal sponsored challenges, or make an online donation. We are currently working hard to raise £300,000 for our latest appeal ‘Going for Gold’ and we have some exciting activities lined up for 2021!

Covid-19 – Behind The Scenes At King’s
As King’s official haematology charity, LIBRA is well aware of the impact Covid-19 is having on the hospital. The LIBRA funded wards, caring for blood cancer patients, are still functioning well and are Covid-secure. Meanwhile, behind the scenes other departments are caring for patients with Covid-19. Channel 4 filmed a documentary at King’s called ‘Surviving […]
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
