As Huddersfield Town support a drive to get more people donating organs, Barbara Harpham from Heart Research UK has told Calendar that those signing up to the register must also tell their next of kin, to make sure their organs can be donated.
Huddersfield Town players Lee Novak, Anthony Gerrard, Alex Smithies, Scott Arfield and Sean Scannell have pledged to sign up the organ donor register after the club's second Support Organ Donation match. The club is encouraging more fans to join the register in the hope of saving lives.

They really must go on and sign on to the register, but the big thing is please tell your next of kin, because even though you have said that you are on the organ donor register, if they don't agree, the organ will not be taken, so please if anybody does that, make sure your relatives know.
