It’s hoped a new sculpture unveiled at Worthing Hospital will encourage more of us to join the Organ Donor Register.

The work of art, and an identical piece at St Richard’s, have been partly funded by the local Organ Donation Committee.

‘The Gift’ shows two people passing a gift, though it’s deliberately unclear who is giving or receiving it. We’ve been speaking with the designer, Rodney Munday, who you can listen to by clicking below.
