We would like to express our thanks and appreciation to everyone who supported Organ Donation Week, 3-9 September.
Early figures highlight that during the week over 52,000 people signed up to become an organ donor. This is a 75% increase compared to the week before Organ Donation Week.
We received a great amount of media coverage and social media engagement and this is only possible thanks to the involvement of so many people across our organisation.
Various locations across the UK lit up their buildings in support of organ donation and we saw organ donation lift wraps installed in hospitals, buses wrapped in organ donation branding and numerous events were held across the country to sign up organ donors, but most importantly encourage people to share their decision to be an organ donor with those closest to them.
