This is Organ Donation Week

September 1, 2019 3:00 PM
Originally published by East Suffolk Liberal Democrats


For one week, the UK celebrates those who donate organs, and therefore those who save
lives. It draws attention to the subject of organ donation, and encourages more
and more people to get involve, and help save someone's mother, child or friend.

As the NHS website says Organ Donation Week is always a highlight of the year for a
wonderful week of activity to shine a light on the generosity of donors and the
incredible impact they have on transplant recipients, and an opportunity to
educate, inform and inspire people, to help save and improve more lives.

Buildings including 10 Downing Street, will be turned pink to raise awareness for the
cause. People will be running marathons to raise awareness, and there will even
be celebrity endorsements! Previously, the week has been extremely successful. In
2018, more people signed up to donate organs than in any previous organ
donation week.
Join them this year and let us save even more lives together.
