Rugby fans in Rochdale are being urged to kick into touch organ transplant waiting lists, as NHS Blood and Transplant teams up with more than 45 sports organisations, including Rochdale Hornets.

The Sign for Life campaign asks supporters across the country to think about organ donation and to be inspired by their club to convert to the NHS Organ Donor Register as well as tell their family they want to be an organ donor.

Right now there are around 6,500 people waiting for a transplant across the UK, including 20 people in Rochdale. On average three people die every day in the UK because of the shortage of organs available. This situation needs to be sin binned.

One organ donor can save or transform the lives of up to nine people. The aim is to get more fans, their families and friends signed by the NHS Organ Donor Register and talking about organ donation. If more families agreed to donate their loved one’s organs, more lives could also be saved.

There are already more than 60,000 people on the NHS Organ Donor Register in Rochdale. Continue reading
