Music festival to help encourage donors and save lives

Video. A very special music festival is taking place tomorrow which will hopefully help save lives.

Hen Fest has been organised by the mother of a young woman who was hours from death before receiving a lung transplant. Several of the performers have either had organ transplants or will need one in the future.

The festival is raising money for Cystic Fibrosis and Harefield Hospital and to raise awareness about the need to sign up to the organ donor register.

In one of our special reports to mark National Transplant Week, Kerry Swain spoke to Cystic Fibrosis sufferer Jennywren Palmer, Hen Fest Organiser Gail Stuart and lung transplant recipient Kate Hennessy.
