Bone marrow recipients in Wales are calling on more of us to join the donor register, at the start of Bone Marrow Awareness Week.

Today, the 'Second Chance' choir, made up of people who have donated and received bone marrow, performed at the Wales Millennium Centre to raise awareness of bone marrow donation.

Seventy-five thousand people have already joined the donor register in Wales but the Welsh blood service say more are needed.
