Nottingham Hospitals Charity supports British Transplant Games

Runners run past Wollaton Hall

Posted on: 30 May 2024

Nottingham Hospitals Charity is proud to announce that we will continue to support the Nottingham teams participating in this year’s British Transplant Games.

Taking place in Nottingham from 1st to 4th August 2024, the Games gives transplant recipients of all ages and abilities the opportunity to participate in over 24 sports across the four days.

Nottingham Hospitals Charity has a longstanding commitment to the Games and has provided over £217,000 of funding to equip the Nottingham teams involved and offer support from behind the scenes for the past ten years.

This year, we’re thrilled that the Games are being held in our home city of Nottingham, underscoring the significance of this event for families and patients alike. We hope that hosting the Games in Nottingham will have a positive impact on the city, raising its profile and highlighting its strong sporting history and welcoming atmosphere.

Nigel Gregory, Chief Executive of Nottingham Hospitals Charity, said: "We are delighted that the British Transplant Games is coming to Nottingham this year. Our significant investment in the adults and children's teams competing over the past ten years reflects our commitment to transplant recipients and donors here in our home city, and our desire to boost morale among patients and families at Nottingham’s hospitals."

The Charity is also proud to be the headline partner for this year’s Donor Run, a flagship event of the Games that sees thousands of transplant recipients and donor families take part in the highly anticipated event.

We have a limited number of spaces available for charity supporters to take part in the run, and we’re also looking for friendly volunteers to help out on the day. The event takes place at the picturesque Wollaton Park on the evening of Saturday 3rd
August 2024.

The Charity’s presence at the run will be marked by various activities, including blowing the air horn to start the race, distributing medals, providing cheer points along the route, and providing volunteers. Our partners Nottingham Rugby will also deliver a fun, family-friendly warm-up on race day.
