Transplant Sport Uk
We are a registered Charity whose main aim is to raise awareness of the need for organ donation in the UK and worldwide. Through organising sports and social events for transplant recipients we can show the benefits of organ donation and prove that you can lead a normal and active life again after transplantation. Founded as a result of the first Transplant Olympics held in Portsmouth in 1978, we have a varied membership throughout the UK aged from 4 to 80 all having received the life-saving gift of a major organ. We welcome the families, donors and donor families to join our Association also and to support our transplant athletes at the various sporting events which we organise throughout the year. We are dependant upon sponsorship and donation to fund the administration and running of the Association. Our appointed Trustees and Management Committee are all volunteers who give of their time, experience and energy to allow us to stage the events that we organise.
