On Sunday 8th July, Phil Powell of Sat Nav Warehouse will be taking part in the Manchester-Blackpool bikeride. A grueling 65 mile cycle in the wind and the rain in conditions better suited to a pedalo than a bike. Whilst he will be taking along three GPS devices to test along the way, the ride is being done to promote awareness of Organ Donation and it’s important role in saving lives. Having recently seen an Uncle’s life saved by an organ donor who gave his organs to save lives of up to nine people, the importance of registering was brought home.
So, we’re not asking for your cash sponsorship! All we ask is that you simply follow these steps to register as an organ donor and post to your Facebook timeline so others know you’ve registered.
1) Visit https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk/ukt/how_to_become_a_donor/registration/registration_form.asp
2) Go to your Facebook profile page (click on your name at the top right of the screen) and select “Life Event” at the top of your timeline
3) Via “Health and Wellbeing”, select “Organ Donor”
4) Press “save”
Tell us you’ve done it so we can say thanks! Tweet us or tell us on facebook: www.facebook.com/SatnavWarehouse
Then spread the word. The more people that do this, the more lives we can potentially save. For more information on organ donation, please visit: http://www.organdonation.nhs.uk/ukt/Default.asp
