249 Gillian Roots New Donor
248 Emma Stead
247 Anon I am very proud of the fact that Philip is Edward and Celia’s son, who I know, and also know Philip although it is quite a while since we were together.  I know how hard 100 miles would be, I do the odd half marathon – normally the Great North Run, Brighton Half Marathon, etc and a swim, and it’s a struggle for me, and to do it 8 times consecutively after not that much preparation is a fantastic achievement.
246 Anon
245 Julia Lee I think everyone should be a donor.    I am fortunate enought to have a healthy family who have never been in a position to require an organ transplant.  I count myself and my family very lucky and cannot imagine it must be like for those in such a situation.
244 James Rose just makes total sense to give life to another life
243 Nicole van Zyl I would love to help others with what I won’t be needing anymore! New Donor

226 Stacey Morton-McCormack Organ donation is a subject very close to my heart, especially since my brother donated his organs in March 2013.
225 Sandy hennis Life is already too short. To help someone to live when I am gone is the best gift anyone can give.
224 Catrin Mulligan (Jones) We few; we happy few; we band of brothers…
223 Anon The thought of people being given a chance of a longer life due to organ donation makes this something everyone should do.
222 Anon To be in a position to do something for another…. An amazing gift of life
July:
221 Joan Mcfarlane My sister, and why should others have to miss out just because I’m selfish to keep them when I don’t need them anymore New Donor
220 Michelle Caldwell
June:
219 Anon New Donor
218 Anon My wife was involved in a fatal accident and although both of us had filled in donor cards the thought never entered my head. I guess that the shock of her death had stopped me thinking straight. If only I had been asked! I would have been comforted knowing her wishes had been followed and others may have benefited. New Donor
217 Maryjane Watson New Donor
216 Judy Jackson It makes sense. Think of all the skills and knowledge we risk losing when someone dies prematurely.
215 Gail Corrin There is no reason not to New Donor

174 Hannah Currington (Cassidy) I taught with Sarah in my NQT year in 2008/9, and was shocked and very saddened to learn of her diagnosis a few days ago. I can’t believe this has happened to Sarah of all people, one of the most healthy and energetic people I ever met. Good luck with all your challenges.

157 Lewis Greenslade You guys might not remember but I met you both when we did the ‘Rock Tour’ together in Alice Springs, Australia.

156 alison kenyon Hope you get to share more beautiful experiences together.  Good luck with all your challenges-the ‘Parish’ is an extraordinary experience 🙂
155 Jenny Orwin
154 victoria o’callaghan I always believed it was the “right thing” to do, but now that my daughter is facing a lung transplant in the future, its more than that. I hope someone can give my child a chance one day, and in return that I myself can give a chance to someone else.
153 Eve Hooley I have such admiration for you you both. My daughter was struck down by a virus that attacked her heart sending her into heart failure. This happened in 2012, she was listed for a heart transplant, luck would shine and she was only listed 9 days when a heart became available. (She was on a life support machine) From this day forth we have pushed for more people to join the organ donor register running donor awareness stands and media coverage.
There can ever be enough people registered so the more we all do can only do but good.
I send strength to you both to see you through the hard times, and treasure the good ones. Eve x

140 Ms Nicola Fitzmaurice I used to think that by becoming an organ donor I was tempting fate, silly I know, but I feared tempting fate.  Now I can’t think of anything nicer than an opportunity to help someone else live on through me. New Donor
139 Jessica Kimber
138 Joanne Hallam
137 Danny Mackness For Sarah and Phil. New Donor

128 Jennifer Kelly If it helps save someone’s life once I’m gone they can have any part of me, as I won’t need it anymore!  I have been on the register for years and feel very strongly there should be an opt out scheme.  And if people want to do something amazing while they are alive then please consider giving blood and joining the bone marrow register too.

New Donor
120 Sarah Marshall To help someone enjoy life after my death.
119 Julia Woodrow When I die I want to make a difference to people so they can live.
118 Charlotte Smith Saw your story posted on Facebook by my Aunt, Elizabeth Woodrow, Richard Marshall’s partner. It prompted me to make sure my details are up to date on the register and get my husband to sign up at the same time. Do hope you have some good news soon x

104 Helen Duriez  I won’t need my organs when I’m gone… Somebody else might. Thinking of Sarah and hoping to help by spreading the word x

89 Sian Bornes

87 Amie Smith I feel my organs, if ever anything happened to me or my family, could save a life. If I ever die young, I can give people a second chance at life which would be wasted if I did not donate my organs.

33 Jon Hannah New Donor
32 Elizabeth Adams why not donate something that will benefit someone else when it is no longer needed for yourself New Donor
31 Carole Bairstow
30 Hayley Bishop I have thought before that I should be a donor but never had the courage to take the plunge and actually do it. But, after finding out about Sarah I needed to do something, even if it is the smallest thing and won’t help her, it may help someone like her in the future and that is the most I can do. New Donor

20 Rosa Hunt Because I believe that Jesus came that we might have life, and life to the full. (john 10:10) New Donor
19 Sarah Stoneley Multiple parts of the human body when donated can help multiple people live a better life. If after death I can help even one person to live then that is reason enough to be on the donor register. Best of luck Sarah and Phil x

17 Shirin McGregor
16 Charlie Hoy New Donor
15 Anon Gosh guys. I didn’t realise you were poorly Sarah. Great website and cause, I’ll try and coax everyone I speak to get on the donor register. Really really hope you are feeling better and the treatment is going well, I’ve got everything crossed.
14 Maria Clayton New Donor
13 Rebecca Pooley
12 Abigail Goldson
11 Stella Cherrington Hi Sarah and Phil, I’ve been a donor for years after my Dad needed a heart transplant. I can’t tell you how strongly I feel about people signing up. I’m sure you are going to boost the numbers with what you are doing. Good luck and stay strong. Love Stella xx
10 Rob Ferrer New Donor
9 Katie Hammond Everybody should have to do it in my opinion. There is no reason not to. You don’t need your organs when you’re dead – why not give someone else the chance of life? New Donor
8 Katie Pickering  To help someone one day in their time of need New Donor
7 Rachel Chadbourne
6 Claire Albrighton  If I am unfortunate enough to die prematurely, I want to know that my organs didn’t just go to waste. Organ donation is incredibly important and helps so many people. However, there are still so many more needing organs and it is so important that we do what we can to help.
5 Simon Cubbon No greater reason than giving something that I will no longer need when I’m dead to someone that really does need it!
