To help and support heart and lung transplant patients of the Freeman Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne both financially and by providing facilities for recreation to enable them to improve their condition. Also to educate the public of the need for organ donation.

Story

Organ Donation transforms lives. I'm raising money for this great local charity through a series of personal challenges, to mark the 20th anniversary of my heart transplant operation in August 2013.

The challenge is to do 20 new activities for the "first" time over the next year to celebrate 20 years of good health.  Each "first" has to be something that I have never done before and could never have done without my life saving operation. 

This is in thanks to the  family of my donor whose kindness changed my life and all the staff who have cared for me over the last twenty years at the Freeman Hospital where I had my operation and at Papworth Hospital, who now provide my continuing care. 

The Challenge is running until August 2013  and I am splitting my fundraising between the FHLTA and the Papworth Hospital Charity (Please follow this link to see my page for the Papworth Hospital Charity).

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now, your support makes all the difference.
