This image and message confronts you as you enter the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading. A beautiful combination of elements with a vital purpose. Many years ago I read The Gift Relationship by Richard Titmuss which was all about donating blood which people do for free. Organ donation is the same. It is a gift we all have the potential to make and can change someone’s life. Like giving blood, it is a very altruistic gift as most often we don’t know who receives what we freely give.
