The Organ Donation Society in St Andrews is the first university society to be  partnered up with NHS Blood and Transplant. The society was set up in memory of St Andrews student, Alex Richardson, who tragically died after an accident in March 2009. Alex became a multiple organ donor and his organs have helped save the lives of four people. Since then we have been working with his mother, Annie Richardson, to promote organ donation at St Andrews. We hope that by using promotional material specific to St Andrews, putting on novel events and getting as many students involved as possible, we can continue to raise awareness about organ donation and significantly increase the number of young people that join the ODR. Out of the whole of the UK, Scotland has the highest percentage of its population on the organ donor register; 41% – but we think we can improve on this! So what are you waiting for? Get in touch, get involved and lets make a difference.
