The family of a Sheffield teenager killed in a car crash, whose gift of life saved five others, are raising awareness of organ donation.
Cian Pace, from Shirecliffe, died in the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham, four days after the crash near Brook Hill roundabout in Sheffield, in November 2013.
The 19-year-old has saved the lives of five people after his family agreed to follow his wishes and donate some of his organs.
They have already raised money for improved facilities for relatives at the intensive care unit at the hospital and are now organising a black tie ball at Kenwood Hall on Saturday, October 31 – the day before what would have been Cian’s 21st birthday. It will feature a three-course meal, live music and a raffle and auction – with proceeds going to Organ Donation.
Cian’s aunt, Alice Keane, from Shiregreen, said: “The ball starts at 6.30pm and is not only a fundraiser and awareness evening, it is also celebrating Cian’s 21st, so the family want it to be an amazing night for an amazing boy.”
Tickets are £40. To buy or donate raffle prizes email firstname.lastname@example.org
