BKPA welcomes the tribute being paid today to the tens of thousands of organ and tissue donors and their families, who have saved and transformed lives.
The national memorial is being unveiled today at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, by The Duke of Gloucester and the BKPA will be there along with hundreds of families of organ donors and transplant recipients.
Paddy Tabor, Chief Executive of BKPA said, “the generosity of donors has transformed thousands of lives. It is wonderful to recognise their gifts of life and to join with the donor families who we know take great pride in knowing their loved ones have transformed the lives of others. We congratulate the Donor Family Network on their vision and efforts to make this lasting memorial a reality. We hope it will stand as a tribute to all donors, but also act as an inspiration to encourage others to join the organ donation register”
