Dr Catherine Penrose - Consultant in Paediatric Intensive Care, Clinical Lead in Organ Donation
Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust
Be A Hero' is a Yorkshire wide organ donation promotion initiative run out of Leeds Teaching Hospital NHS trust. Since the campaign's inception in 2015 Hatch has provided with us with invaluable support and guidance, helping us towards national recognition and numerous awards. They have engaged numerous celebrities as ambassadors to endorse our work and used social and digital media to great effect to enhance our exposure and get our message out there ' they're always inventive, never mundane, and they keep coming forward with great ideas. They've been sensitive when needed but provocative when necessary. One such provocative event was in central Leeds during Organ Donation Week 2019 when we presented the 'Silent Box'. An accomplished actress placed in a Perspex box on a busy Leeds thoroughfare, talking and gesticulating to passers-by. Inaudible, she represented the loss of your voice and choice, if you do not tell your family your wishes regarding organ donation. It was a great focus and talking point and attracted lots of media interest with Leeds Live coverage of the event alone being viewed in excess over 12,000 times. I cannot recommend the Hatch Team highly enough. They are friendly, inspirational and deliver... we couldn't ask for more!
