EverythingBranded supporting the NHS’s Organ Donation Week

Today (Monday, September 4) marks the start of an awareness week EverythingBranded.co.uk really believe in – Organ Donation Week.

The week focuses on families and friends talking about organ donation and the incredible amount of good it can do. NHS Blood and Transplant, hospitals, charities, and donation supporters are encouraging people to be more open to talking about organ donation.

Most people support organ donation but for it to go ahead there needs to be the family’s permission too. Unfortunately, a lot of potential donations are stopped because of this. This year’s Organ Donation Week is to increase awareness of these issues and help families talk about it before a decision must be made.

Organ Donation Week is particularly important to EverythingBranded.co.uk as it closely relates to one of the charities they support. The Bodie Hodges Foundation is a charity EverythingBranded have a great relationship with.

The charity was created after 10-month-old Bodie passed away. Bodie donated his organs which saved the lives of four other children who would have passed away without the donation. Set up in his memory, the charity encourages and supports the good that organ donation can do.

Paul Rowlett, Managing Director of EverythingBranded.co.uk, said: “Organ donation is something we really believe in so we think awareness weeks such as Organ Donation Week are a great way to get everyone talking about this important issue.

“Working closely we’ve The Bodie Hodges Foundation we have seen first-hand the incredible amount of good that organ donation can do.

“We would like to encourage everyone to have an open conversation about organ donation and to get involved.”
