Organ Donation Memorial unveiling

The new organ donation memorial was unveiled last week at a special event to coincide with Organ Donation Week, which saw the families and friends of organ donors gather for refreshments and an order of service by the hospital chaplain.

‘Thank you for life’, which has been designed by artist Stella Corrall, embraces the varying aspects of organ donation, from those in need, those wishing to give and those who have had lives transformed.

All of these aspects overlap into one another and the intersecting circles of the design embrace this with each one acknowledging heartfelt words.

The Organ Donation Team at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals hope the piece will raise awareness of organ donation, themed around the concept of the ‘gift of life’, and think about their end of life wishes.
