Dear Felixstowe Nub News reader

More than 6,800 people in the UK are spending the festive season waiting for an organ transplant – and more than 220 of these patients are children*. 

These mums, dads, wives, husbands, partners, daughters, sons can only be saved by someone giving them the greatest gift, the gift of life. 

At a time of giving let people know you want to save lives.

Signing up to be an organ donor is quick and easy and makes it easier for families if they know what you want. 

Give hope to the thousands of people and hundreds of children on the transplant waiting list.

Please tell your family about your decision so that they know what you want.

Yours sincerely

Anthony Clarkson

Director of Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation

NHS Blood and Transplant

*waiting list as at 8 December 2022, 6818 patients actively waiting for an organ transplant, 228 of them are children
