Up and coming events
Order of St John UK Award Nobles Hospital – October 2018
We are inviting families of donors to get in touch if they would like to receive the award on behalf of their loved one. You do not have to have a memorial stone in the garden or attend the ceremony to receive it. For some families we understand it may be too soon or too painful to attend and it can be arranged for your certificate and pin to be sent out in the post. Please read for more about the award below and by clicking on the link. It is very important that families get in touch with us with their postal address so an official invite can be sent to them from the UK. All of the certificates are produced in the UK ahead of the ceremony and officially signed.
The Order of St John UK Award for Organ Donation honours the incredible gift donors and their families in the UK make by donating their organs to save and improve the lives of others.
It is awarded by invitation to families whose loved one donated their organs, and posthumously honours the donor.
The family can chose to accept the award on the donor’s behalf – either at a regional ceremony, or in private.

This award is for those who donated organs. Unfortunately tissue donation and eye-only donation are not recognised under this scheme.
The gifts of tissue donation and of eye donation are incredibly important in transforming the recipients’ lives but the Order of St John Award for Organ Donation was established to specifically to recognise solid organ donation.
