Gre­cians give their sup­port to donor call

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

LAST week­end The FLP told how a host of Foot­ball League clubs are back­ing the cam­paign to in­crease the num­ber of or­gan donors – and Ex­eter City are lead­ing by ex­am­ple.

Gre­cians sup­porter Steve Gaz­zard and his helpers added more donors to the reg­is­ter when they set up a stall at the club. Man­ager Paul Tis­dale and striker Clin­ton Mor­ri­son both popped along to of­fer their sup­port.

Steve has been per­son­ally af­fected. His daugh­ter, Sarah Wright, a City fan, sadly passed away in Novem­ber 2012 whilst await­ing a dou­ble lung trans­plant.

Self­lessly, upon her death, Sarah do­nated her or­gans and now three peo­ple are lead­ing a nor­mal life who, be­fore, only had a week to live.

From June 2012 to date, Steve has held over 230 sep­a­rate ‘Sign Up’ cam­paigns in Ex­mouth, a fan­tas­tic trib­ute to Sarah.

More than ten thou­sand peo­ple des­per­ately re­quire an or­gan trans­plant but there are not enough donors or or­gans to go around.
