When Kidney Kids Scotland visited seeking fundraising donations, to support their cause of getting the Glasgow based team to the 2019 games in Newport, they were thrilled when we announced that we would sponsor the full kit for the athletes and support team.
Kidney Kids Scotland is a Scottish based charity that is raising funds, donating haemodialysis equipment to NHS hospitals and is funding the first ever Paediatric Home Haemodialysis Nurse Specialist.
Since the year 2000 the team through its hard work and fundraising activities has raised in excess of £2m and supplied the majority of haemodialysis machines in The Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.
Supporting the Scottish based families affected by renal illness is a priority to Kidney Kids Scotland to ensure they have the moral and financial support when they most need it.
“We are very happy to play a small part in what can be the highlight in the lives of many of these children that, through no choice of their own, require to undergo life-extending transplants and continuous dialysis. Providing them with memoirs of what they participated in to look back on during tough times was important for me.”
Roger Lewis. Managing Director at Lion Safety.
"I would like to thank you and all concerned for the amazing job you did in getting the kit together for The Transplant Games. I simply cannot tell you how much we appreciate your support. This was an amazing donation and one that will be so much appreciated by all the children taking part in the Transplant Games in Newport and their families.
The Transplant Games is a chance for these incredibly brave youngsters, who have had a transplant, to show that their condition is no barrier to achievement and also, just as importantly, to enjoy themselves. Looking and feeling like a team goes a long way to helping them to this."
Sheena. Manager at Kidney Kids.
The British Transplant Games have taken place in host cities across the UK for the last 40 years. As inclusive games, they are for transplant survivors including children as young as five which can compete in 25 different sports events.
