CUSTOMERS at a town centre pub will be able to add their support to a campaign in memory of a baby girl.
The Mile in Mile End Road, South Shields has given its backing to In Miley’s Memory.
The campaign – supported by the Gazette – was launched on February 11 by the family of Miley Turbitt to encourage people to sign up to the organ donation register.
The 14-week-old, who suffered from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, died last November, after a heart donor couldn’t be found in time.
Tomorrow night, Miley’s sister Yasmin Eckert and friends, will be at The Mile from 7.30pm, to promote the campaign.
As well as signing people up to the organ donation register, they will have a petition at hand for people to sign, which calls for a change in the organ donation system to one where it is automatic unless a person opts out.
Manager of The Mile, Lesley Cobb, said: “We are really glad to be able to support the campaign and hope we can encourage as many people as possible to sign up to become an organ donor on the night.”
