A Call To Action- Be Like Bill

This year at Toranafest 2019 we would like to welcome a ‘call to action’ on organ donation. The Canberra Torana Club lost a wonderful young man a few years ago and his organs were donated. Bill Spencer, a Torana enthusiast and active member of the Canberra Torana Club, was only 26 when he tragically lost his life. He became an organ donor and saved the lives of 5 people and restored sight to another 2. Bill’s family have seen firsthand how this has changed the lives of the recipient and also their loved ones. A Facebook page called ‘Be like Bill – Be a Hero’ has been started to help raise awareness of DonateLife for Organ & Tissue donation. Our aim is to encourage people to register to become an organ donor and to discuss this wish with their family. Registration can be done at the ‘Be Like Bill – Be a Hero’ marquee that will be set up at Toranafest at the Show and Shine on the Sunday. Toranafest 2019
