Over the years, we have discovered that one method of raising awareness triumphs above all others; telling a real life story. In 2010, we rolled out an exciting new speakers project, in which we train and support members of the Transplant community to give talks and presentations. Look out for upcoming training dates on our blog page.
Robyn’s Rainbows started August 2007, when we sent Robyn Tainty, who was in desperate need of a double lung transplant, a balloon as a beacon of hope. Putting a smile on somebody's face is important, especially when there isn't much to smile about. LLTGL are proud to fund this ongoing project.
Thanks to the fantastic fundraising efforts of our supporters, LLTGL are delighted to be funding some cutting-edge research being carried out by Imperial college. The study is focusing on using a new solution during machine perfusion, to prevent clotting and increase the number of viable organs for transplantation.
Our advocates are based all over the UK and help us raise awareness through the organisation of events and by having a presence in the media. Each of them have different reasons to be involved with the charity, and each brings with them their own invaluable experience. We also have some fantastic ambassadors, who are raising awareness whilst still waiting and hoping for the gift of life. You can read more about them here.
