Walk across London for organ donation awareness
Celebrate Organ Donation Week by joining us on a walk through London to mark the importance of organ donation and honour donors and their families.
Organ recipients, donor families, specialist nurses and clinical staff from hospitals, will come together on Thursday 5 September 2019 to celebrate organ donation, remember loved ones and raise vital awareness for those still waiting.
The Walk will take place between 11:00 and 14:00, with meet-up points organised at the entrances to five London hospitals:
