Trust in Yellow supports Sign for Life

Trust In Yellow is proud to support a new organ donation campaign, Sign for Life.

From Saturday February 27 to Sunday March 13, NHS Blood and Transplant will be asking football fans to “join our team” and sign up to the NHS Organ Donor Register to help save and improve lives.

Three people die each day in need of a transplant and there are currently around 7,000 people on the waiting list in the UK because of a shortage of organ donors.

There are simply not enough organs available, so football supporters are being asked to think about joining the register and then share their decision with friends and family.

A single organ donor can transform the lives of up to nine people! So if more people signed the register and their families then agreed to donate their loved one’s organs, more lives could be saved.

Following a hugely successful campaign last year supported by 27 clubs, foundations and organisations, NHS Blood and Transplant is aiming to get even more people talking about organ donation and taking action in 2016.

There are already a number of Premier League and Football League clubs on board to support the campaign including Chelsea, Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers, Queens Park Rangers, Sheffield Wednesday, Peterborough, Dagenham & Redbridge and Notts County. Trust In Yellow would like to encourage Southport supporters to join the team.

How to get involved:

• Join the team: register as an organ donor at organdonation.nhs.uk/signforlife or call 0300 123 23 23

• Share your decision with your family, as NHS Blood and Transplant will need them to support donation going ahead

• Follow the campaign on social media using #signforlife

Ten-year badge presentation

Ahead of the recent home match against Braintree Town, a presentation took place for the winner of the competition to design a ten-year badge for Trust in Yellow.

To celebrate the Trust’s tenth anniversary in 2016 and a milestone year for the Trust, local school children were invited to design a special badge to be used during the year ahead.

The Trust was delighted to receive a total of 144 entries, which were narrowed down to a shortlist of 23 before supporters were asked to select the winner from four finalists.

The new badge is designed by Harriet James-Hodges, from Ainsdale St Johns Primary School, whose entry came out on top in a poll run during January.

Harriet was presented with a copy of her winning design and prizes at the recent home match against Braintree by Alan Spence, Southport’s all-time record goalscorer, and Trust chairman Martin Robinson.

Harriet’s design will be used as the Trust’s badge throughout the year and will be the focal point for the Trust’s ten-year celebrations.

The Trust would like to thank all the schools and children who took part. Not only did the number of entries received surpass expectations, but the quality of the designs was of the highest standard and choosing a shortlist and four finalists was a very difficult task.

It was clear from the entries that so many children had put a lot of time and thought into their designs, and the Trust was thrilled to see such enthusiasm for the competition.

Trust Statement

Like all genuine Southport supporters, members of the Trust board were very disappointed by some of the events at Chester on Saturday. It appeared that a coach full of people arrived late, many the worse for drink who tried to cause trouble. Fortunately this was averted but at the expense of having to call for a large police presence which we are not used to at our matches.
Obviously this coach had NOTHING to do with the official Trust In Yellow coach but it does emphasise why we cannot permit drinking on TIY coaches to and from matches. If for instance the police at Chester had decided to search our coach and had found evidence of people drinking on it there could have been serious consequences for the Trust and the coach company.
If people cannot agree to the non-drinking rule on the coach we will refuse their bookings
