Mum hopes son’s legacy will encourage others to donate organs

A mum whose son Daryl saved the lives of five others after he died in a road accident is hoping his story will inspire others to sign up to the organ donor register.

Lily Turley was joined by Health Secretary Nicola Sturgeon on Monday as she returned to her son’s former school in Hamilton, Holy Cross High, to pledge her support to the re-launch of an organ donation teaching pack.

Daryl Turley died in January 2009 at the age of 13 after he was struck by a motorbike as he crossed Bothwell Road, near Hamilton Racecourse. He suffered severe head injuries during the accident and never recovered.
