Time for more thanks and massive recognition for all the fund raising she does. Emma lost her Mum to a brain aneurysm and bravely agreed to donate her organs to help others. Despite having 4 aneurysms herself Emma has been fund raising for Organ Donation Isle of Man. Next year Emma is putting together a team for the Parish Walk in memory of her Mum and to raise money for the charity. If you would like to join her team please drop me a message and I will pass it on to Emma.
Emma also raises awareness on brain aneurysms and the symptoms to look out for. She is doing all this whist suffering the effects of her brain surgery and medication and to me is a super hero herself. Well done Emma, thank you for all you do
Another recognition and thanks to another amazing fund raiser David Crutcher. David very sadly lost his teenage son James also to a brain aneurysm.
David has raised money for the charity whilst marshaling for the TT, designing and selling Organ Donation badges and this year taking part in the Parish Walk.
He is pictured here with his gorgeous son James, his lovely wife Sarah and at the finish line in Peel.
David thank you so much
More thanks and recognition to Gary Conwell for taking part in the Parish Walk in 2018 in memory of his beautiful daughter Nikki.
Gary raised an amazing £815 for the charity. This money means we can provide memorial stones to all donor families free of charge.
Thank you so much Gary
More thanks and recognition to another amazing fund raiser. Zoe took part in the Parish Walk in 2018 in memory of her brother Steven and to raise money for our charity.
Thank you so much Zoe
Dana Devlin Shaw
Another one of our amazing fund raisers I need to say a massive thanks to is Dana Devlin Shaw. Dana is raising money in memory of her brother Shane in a very unique way on the lead up to her 50th birthday.
Marie and Danny
Massive congratulations from myself and Organ Donation Isle of Man to Marie and Danny who celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary last month. Instead of gifts they asked instead for donations for our charity in memory of their son Shane who passed away in 2019 at just 41 years old.
Shane is remembered and recognized for the gift of life he gave to others in the memorial garden.
Shane’s sister Dana has also been raising money for us ahead of her special birthday. Thank you so much to a wonderful family

Two beautiful benches made by Island Iron Craft!
The first one was bought by funds raised by Nikkie (a member of the organ donation committee) who had a life saving heart transplant and her colleagues from Barclays Bank. The bench takes pride of place in the organ donation memorial garden and is just stunning. The other was donated by Dave the owner of Island Iron Craft to say thank you to all our wonderful NHS staff. It’s located outside the main front door at Nobles hospital. Here is Dave handing it over to Pam Makin who is also from the committee.

Yesterday a new memorial stone was placed in the Organ Donation Memorial garden by Dana Devlin Shaw in memory and recognition of the gift of life her brother Shane gave to 5 others when he died suddenly 1 year ago today.
Shane had made his wishes known to his family regarding organ donation and they were able to honour this when he died. Dana wanted to do something to raise money in his memory and came up with a very unique way over 2 years and ahead of her 50th birthday. How does it work well basically its equal to 50p every fortnight for the next 2 years. For more information or to donate please go to paypal.me/danadevlinshaw. Yesterday Dana presented the charity a cheque for £1,700, this was raised by Dana, her friends, family and also The Paw Patrol Doggy Day Care. On behalf of the charity Dana thank you so much. My thoughts are with all of Shanes family today.
All monies raised by the charity stay on the Isle of Man and are used for providing memorial stones to donor families, the upkeep of the garden and promotional items and events. Registered charity number 1262.
