National Organ Donation Week, at Kettering General Hospital, was supported by Hotpoint with the gift of a top-of-the-range combination microwave oven for the raffle.
This year the campaign focused on leaving your loved ones certain. It is very important to talk to all your loved ones and to make sure that they understand and support your organ donation wish. Whether or not you decide to donate, if your friends and family know, it leaves them certain that they are carrying out your wish, making a difficult time a little easier for all those around you.
Unfortunately, every year, many opportunities for transplants are missed because families and loved ones are unsure of what to do. The event at Kettering General Hospital, with the exciting raffle, provided an invaluable opportunity to chat to, and engage with, staff and visitors about organ donation.
Simon Weldon, the Group Chief Executive of Kettering and Northampton General Hospitals, picked the raffle winner and commented: “We are enormously grateful and thank Hotpoint for the generous gift for the raffle, and in supporting and helping us raise awareness of organ donation.”
Shirley Newman, Chair, Organ and Tissue Donation Committee, Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust said: “This year was particularly successful, with a new location in the hospital grounds, and with the exciting raffle prizes, we increased the engagement with staff and visitors. We cannot thank everyone enough for all the effort in making this year our best, and Hotpoint’s gift made a huge difference in helping us to promote organ donation.”
