This week sees the start of the 42nd British Transplant Games; this year held in Newport, Wales.
Kidney Care UK is a proud partner in the Games and also provides support to teams from hospitals to take part. The Games take place over 4 days and see more than 25 different events with hundreds of transplant recipients taking part watched by thousands of supporters.
The British Transplant Games is the flagship event of Transplant Sport and aims to demonstrate the benefits of transplantation whilst increasing public awareness of the need for more people to join the NHS Organ Donation Register. The British Transplant Games are the flagship project of the charity Transplant Sport and have been in existence for over 40 years when the first “Transplant Olympics” took place in Portsmouth in 1978. At that time, these Games were an international event and included teams from France, Greece and even the USA.
The 2019 Games will be held in Newport, Wales from the 25 - 28 of July.
