The number of people donating organs after death has risen 50 percent since 2008.
More than 12 hundred people in the UK donated their organs in the last year - leading to over 3 thousand transplants.
The increase has been largely credited to the network of specialist nurses who approach and support bereaved relatives in hospitals.
But Jules Hollidge who's director for the Fleshandblood, the Christian based organ donation campaign has told the News Hour they've been doing a lot of work too:
A Monthly Gift Of £5 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
