‘I am so delighted to be able to honour my donor’s memory.’

‘When I first travelled with the team in 2016 I was very wary of going away with people I didn’t know, but straight away I was made feel welcome.  The team are like a second family now.  Also meeting other national competitors has been brilliant.’

‘I am looking forward to seeing the people I met in Finland again and making new friends.  Also if possible, coming home with a medal in honour of my donor.’

‘I would highly recommend this experience to anybody thinking of taking part.’
