One Thousand Thank Yous announced

1000 thank yous


We are delighted to announce that an artist has been selected to produce a new art installation called ‘One Thousand Thank Yous’. Funded by the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Organ Donation Committee, the piece is set to be built and installed in the atrium at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital during 2016.

Irwin Wilson who leads the Arts Steering Group at the Trust said: “One Thousand Thank Yous will be a way of recognising and thanking the organ and tissue donors and their families for their extraordinary gifts.

“As well as being an absorbing and engaging piece to be enjoyed by patients, staff and visitors in its own right, we also hope that the installation will be a continuing point of interest, raising awareness of the value of organ donation for years to come.

“We are appealing to members of the public to contribute to this landmark installation by visiting our website: www.gloshospitals.nhs.uk/thousandthanks and emailing us with their stories and thank yous.”
