PNE change name for organ donor campaign


 Football News 24/

Preston North End (Beginning) changed it's clubs name temporarily to highlight the importance of organ donation.

Today marks the start of Organ Donation Week and the campaign is calling on people to “Turn an End into a Beginning” by talking about organ donation by encouraging people to tell their family they want to be a donor.

Andy Hayt­hor­nthwaite, head of community at Preston North End, said: “We hope to inspire more people from Preston to Turn An End Into A Beginning by talking about organ donation.”

At the start of this year, the Lancashire Evening Post launched its Lancashire: Giving the Gift of Life campaign with the aim of getting at least another 2,01 people to sign up as organ donors in 2016. Figures today show that 7,527 people have registered on the Organ Donor Register since the campaign began.
