We Want You!

Our team has been in existence for many years and every year it grows stronger. Its strength comes from the people who make up the team.

  • Are you a transplant recipient?
  • Are you on dialysis?
  • Are you a supporter?
  • Could you be a team sponsor (we are looking for a kit sponsor)?

YOU can join our team – newcomers are welcome year round, as is financial support!

LABEL

We have just started an online fundraising campaign to help get as many transplant recipients as possible to next year’s World Transplant Games in Newcastle. Every Euro donated will help us achieve our goal of getting as many transplant recipients as possible doing as much physical activity as possible. Please click on the link below.

Support our Team for WTG2019

With the media coverage that our team will generate through their achievements at the Games the key message about the importance and success of organ donation for transplantation will reach a wider audience – the bigger our team, the bigger our impact!

you can contact team manager, Colin White, for more details about any aspect of the Games.

Sports Programme 2019

Planning for our 2019 season is well under way. We have a big two years ahead of us with the Worlds on just across the water in Newcastle in August and we will be hosting the Europeans in 2020 – a great opportunity to up our game and grow our programme!

Facilities Currently booked for 2019 are listed below. We are also open to booking other facilities on other dates as we are actively seeking input from National Governing Bodies and others so that we can offer as many opportunities as possible for people to achieve their own goals in relation to transplant/dialysis sport.

I look forward to people networking and coming together outside any centrally planned sessions so that we embrace as many people as possible and open opportunities to ensure that we all stay motivated to achieve our personal goals.
