A St John’s pupil has been working hard to raise awareness for organ donation in recent months, after a close family friend of hers passed away.
Ellie Bokor-Ingram (Upper Fifth, Gloucester House) and her sister Sophie had known Georgia since she was a baby, and are close friends of her family. After the untimely passing of their young friend, the girls decided that the best way to honour her memory was by writing a song.
The girls performed “Georgia’s Song” at her funeral - a heartfelt and fitting eulogy to their friend, who had adored songs and music. It was then decided that the girls would record the song onto a CD, to raise funds for Georgia’s trust, the Georgia Sandy Fieldsend Fund.
“Georgia’s Song” is now available to buy on iTunes, Amazon and HMV digital, with proceeds going to the Georgia Sandy Fieldsend Fund, in the Thomas Cook Children’s Critical Care Unit of King’s College Hospital, London. You can listen to the song and download it from the links below.
When Georgia died aged just three, her parents made the difficult decision to donate her organs. On the night that Georgia died she saved two lives, one baby and one teenage girl. Then, a few weeks after she died, her organs saved two further lives and restored the gift of sight to two men in their twenties.
Ellie also organised an assembly at St John’s about organ donation. Georgia’s mother, Ilse Fieldsend, said, “It is our greatest wish to keep Georgia’s memory alive. By raising awareness for organ donation and buying “Georgia’s Song”, we can help others through her memory.’
