Staff at a healthcare firm in Sheffield are officially gold medal winners - after receiving an award for backing the city’s Transplant Games.
B. Braun Medical, which has its headquarters in Chapeltown, has been presented with gold, silver and bronze medals to recognise its support for the Westfield Health British Transplant Games, which took place in Sheffield last year.
Hans Hux, the firm’s group chief executive, said: “We are honoured to have received this trio of medals and to have played a part in helping boost organ donor registrations across the region.”
Graham Moore, Westfield Health’s chairman, said: “Without the support of organisations such as B. Braun, the games simply wouldn’t have been able to have taken place in Sheffield.”
The number of people who have signed the Organ Donor Register has risen by 10,000 names since the event.
