ALBION SUPPORT NHS SIGN FOR LIFE CAMPAIGN

25 March 2017

The club is backing the campaign ran by the NHS.

 
Brighton & Hove Albion has joined a number of top Premier League, Championship and League One clubs across the country, in urging fans to show the red card to the organ transplant waiting list, by supporting the NHS Sign For Life campaign.

The club is therefore asking Albion fans and their friends and family to think about organ donation in support for the campaign.

There are currently around 10,000 people in need of a transplant and the fact is there are simply not enough organs available. One organ donor can transform the lives of up to nine people. If more families agreed to donate their loved one's organs, more lives could be saved.

Anthony Clarkson, assistant director for Organ Donation and Transplantation at NHS Blood and Transplant said, "We are asking all football fans to take a moment to reflect on not just on their team's result, but on whether they would like to help others to live after they have died by donating their organs.

“We are delighted that so many top teams are working with us to encourage their fans to join the Organ Donor Register, showing that they want to save and improve the lives of others. Football is our national sport and the passion fans have for the game and their team will, through this campaign, offer hope to all those who are waiting for a transplant.

“Signing the Organ Donor Register really is a simple process - it takes five minutes of your time and means that should the time come, your family will know you want to donate your organ."

Getting involved with the campaign is simple. To join the NHS Organ Donor Register, visit www.organdonation.nhs.uk. Let your friends and family know when you have signed The Organ Donor Register and join the conversation online by using the campaign hash tag #organdonor.
