Introducing a new WI campaign
We are delighted to launch our new campaign 'Make a Match', which seeks to promote registration to the aligned UK stem cell registry to enable more people to receive potentially life-saving stem cell transplants. Throughout September, we'll be marking Blood Cancer Awareness Month by breaking down myths and misconceptions around stem cell donation. Follow our social media channels all month and find out more about the campaign by clicking here.

Amazing work by the members of Wool WI in Dorset, who have set a world record by making the largest ever Dorset button. The button, measuring in at 7ft 2in, was verified by the Guinness World Records in August.

Help us by completing our '5 Minutes That Matter' cervical screening campaign survey. The findings of the research will inform the WI’s work to improve cervical screening programmes once health services are back on a normal footing. All women and people with a cervix aged 25 and over who live in England, Wales, Jersey, Guernsey, or the Isle of Man are invited to take part.
