A MASSIVE number of organ donors have come forward after a Huddersfield Town match was dedicated to the life-saving cause.
More than 9,000 people have added their names to the organ donor register nationally since the League 1 home game against Oldham Athletic earlier this month.
It is understood a large proportion of those were Town fans who attended the Galpharm Stadium game.
It brings the total number of organ donors to 18,543,180.
Today, Town officials thanked fans for backing the organ donor campaign.
Town chairman Dean Hoyle(pictured, inset) was delighted with the response.
He said: “It is brilliant to hear that so many of our fans connected with our campaign and have become donors, and to think our organ donation drive may save a person’s life.
“The fans were brilliant.The atmosphere they created during the game was superb and the way they embraced the campaign even more so. They are a credit to the club.”
Town dedicated the game – attended by 13,000 – to raising awareness of organ donation.
Staff from Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust wore Town’s specially-produced T-shirts to hand out leaflets and fliers with information on how to become a donor.
