the Mayor of Dudley is urging people to join the organ donation register ahead of the national Organ Donation Week @WeAreBCR

Running from 5 to 11 September this year’s theme is ‘turn an end into a beginning’ and will highlight how organ donation can give others the chance of a new life.

Every day across the UK around three people who could have benefited from a transplant die because there aren’t enough organ donors.

Councillor Mohammed Hanif, Mayor of Dudley, said:

“We’re encouraging people in Dudley to talk to their friends, family and colleagues about organ donation and to get signed up on the register today.

“There are currently 6,500 people waiting for a transplant but by getting more people to sign up here in Dudley we can make a difference and save lives.”
