ORGAN DONATION - more people are carrying organ donor cards in the county, and 24 people are alive and well thanks to donations. It's something I've been meaning to sign up to for years, Bill from Brooke suggested we have it as an opt-out on our driving licence, which makes a lot of sense to me. We had lots of comments on our social media, many saying they carry a card. Julie said she's alive thanks to stem cell donation 18 months ago, Louise said when her daughter died a donation of her eyes helped three people as they used different parts.
