Jersey Day Awareness 2019
20 August 2019 | 2 min read
Last weekend marked three years since Peter Beaumont, director, son of Earle & Lynette, brother of Grant and Susanne, and my brother in law, passed away following a motor vehicle accident. He is survived by his wife, Gabi, and two young daughters.
Peter had been a strong advocate for organ donation and was actively involved in promoting Jersey Day in the months leading up to his passing. Peter's own legacy was saving the lives of five critically ill people, including two children. Jersey Day is an initiative of the Gremmo family following their own tragic loss of their son Nathan in 2015, and is to be marked on Friday, 30 August 2019.
We take great pride in supporting the initiative of the Gremmo family in helping to raise awareness via Jersey Day. This is not a fund raising event, rather an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance and significant impact organ donation can have on others. Can you please spread the word to your employers / employees / families / friends and schools to support Jersey Day and the message it carries. Peter, himself, was a keen football fan and player and wore the Number 8 - now proudly worn on the soccer field by his sister and nephew, in his honour.
