National Transplant Week

Posted by Oli on Thursday 5th July, 2007

As you may or may not know, next week is National Transplant Week, throughout which lots of various things will be happening to raise awareness of organ donation and suchlike.

Tomorrow morning I’m being interviewed by BBC Look East and the piece should run as part of their 6.30pm main evening news, all things being well, so those of you in the Eastern region, keep your eyes peeled for that.

With luck, I’ll have more media stuff going on throughout the week, too.  The local papers will pick up my story again, I hope, and also perhaps local radio, too.

Nationally, look out for Emily on Richard and Judy during the week, as well as a friend of mine called Robyn who will take Emily’s place on the GM:TV sofa as resident PWCF awaiting transplant – naturally I’d have been up for it, but I’m not a pretty girl, so I think that ruled me out…

For more information on Transplant Week, check out the Transplants in Mind and UK Transplant websites, as well as our very  own Live Life Then Give Life campaign, through which we will be targeting a whole host of local media across the country, and hopefully some national media, too.

So keep your eyes peeled in your local press for pics of attractive young people sporting their Live Life Then Give Life or their I’d Give You One T-shirts – and spread the word about organ donation to all around you.
