Relatives of individuals who have saved lives through organ donation were honoured at a special awards ceremony held on Monday, 20 October, 2014.
St John Cymru Wales has worked with NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) since 2012 to recognise the incredible gift that donors and families make by consenting to donate their organs to save the lives of others.
Given in the name of HM The Queen, 11 families from all over Wales received a specially designed pin and citation.
The Welsh Awards Ceremony was sponsored by the Welsh Rugby Union and held in the St. David’s Lounge at Millennium Stadium.
The awards were presented to the families by Wales Captain and Cardiff Blues rugby player Sam Warburton and our own Prior for Wales, Dan Clayton Jones, OBE.
