Exmouth’s Steve hails successful campaign week
PUBLISHED: 12:30 16 September 2016
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.
