Scottish organ recipients support STV's From The Heart campaign

During Valentine's Week, STV will be supporting the nationwide From The Heart campaign to raise awareness of the importance of the NHS Organ Donor Register.

The Tonight special, which airs at 8pm on Wednesday 13 February, will look at the stories of those on the waiting list, and a host of stars will feature in From The Heart at 9pm in a bid to increase sign ups to the NHS Organ Donor Register.

In Scotland, over 600 people are currently waiting on a lifesaving transplant.  Organ recipients including Hannah MacKereth and Kirsten Harrold have shared their stories as part of the drive to highlight the difference organ donation can make, and encourage people to talk about organ donation with their loved ones.
