Hammill, Clayton and Stead support Give and Let Live campaign
Huddersfield Town players have today backed the Club’s efforts to raise awareness of Organ Donation via the ‘Give and Let Live’ campaign.
Friday’s match against Blackpool will mark the third occasion that the Terriers have used a high-profile fixture to promote the importance of Organ Donation.
On Monday, htafc.com published a case study to show the importance of Organ Donation. The case study involved the Club’s Receptionist Hilary Horsfall whose husband Dave underwent a life-saving double lung transplant operation.
Ahead of Town’s Capital One Cup Third Round clash at Hull City on Tuesday, three of Town’s First Team stars have pledged their support to the campaign.
Huddersfield Town winger Adam Hammill said: “It is a campaign that doesn’t get enough attention. You hear on the news about young, sick children who are desperately in need of an organ – and there just aren’t enough out there. I am delighted to have signed up and just hope that others follow suit after being made aware of it.”
Adam Clayton added: “It might not be for everyone for many different reasons and I understand that, but I’m happy to donate organs as it could potentially help a lot of people.”
Town striker Jon Stead told htafc.com: “God forbid that anyone in my family ever needs an organ urgently, but if they did we would explore the option. As a result it goes without saying that it should work both ways; it’s a ‘no-brainer’.”
