The Lord Mayor for Bristol (2013 – 2014) Cllr Faruk Choudhury selected the Blood and Organ Donation Campaign as his special project for his year of office. In particular, the Lord Mayor’s aim was to raise awareness and increase blood and transplant donation in Bristol with a particular focus on those groups who are under-represented in the donation service, and whose community members have to wait longer for transplants.
Bristol Multi-Faith Forum has supported the Campaign since its launch in 2013.
On 4th June 2014 a partnership agreement was signed between Bristol City Council and NHS Blood and Transplant. This is the legacy of the campaign – a formal agreement to continue with this vital work.
