Organ Donation Isle of Man will be holding the Island’s first service of Remembrance for Organ Donor families next month.
It will be held at St George’s Church in Douglas from 3pm on Saturday 7th December.
Anyone who has been affected by organ donation or transplant is encouraged to join the event, which will be led by The Venerable Andrew Brown Archdeacon of Man.
