A PLEA has gone out to people from the Gainsborough area to put their names on a register which provides the ultimate gift of life to thousands of people who are waiting for an organ.

An NHS spokesman has said that more people could benefit from life-saving or life enhancing treatment if more people signed up to the NHS Organ Donor Register.

“Families can gain a great deal of comfort from knowing that their tragedy has given hope to others,” he said.

“Donation may be the one positive thing that can come out of an otherwise tragic situation and the family should always be given the option.”
