British Transplant Games MF Donation

The games are a chance for anyone across the country who has had a transplant of any kind , ages from as young as 2 up to sometimes 80+ to take part in various sporting activities from the more sedentary ones like ten pin bowling and darts to track and field events and swimming. The whole ethos of the games is for transplant recipients to show their thanks to their donors and donor families.

The event is open for all abilities and skill levels and in fact the person coming last is always the person who gets the most cheers! Team Portsmouth came back with 7 golds, 3 silvers and a 2 bronzes. It was as always a very inspiring and emotional event and feels like one big extended family. We even became part of the Guinness book of records with having the most transplant recipients in one room (724)!


The team were very grateful for the Mears Foundation for their donation of £250 which went towards new shorts and tracksuit bottoms for our team.
