An Exmouth campaigner has hailed his activities during the recent National Organ Donor Awareness Week as a success.

Steve Gazzard has worked to raise awareness and sign up new donors since his daughter Sarah Wright died waiting for a double lung transplant in 2012.

During the week, Steve signed up 47 new donors, taking his total to 4,183, while a finale event at the Bicton Inn – featuring a model bodypainted with the locations of human organs and a pro-donation message – raised more than £260 for the British Lung Foundation.

Steve will be back signing up donors in the Magnolia Centre tomorrow (Friday) from 11am.
