August 3 2015
With more than 850 Transplant Athletes from across the UK and overseas competing, the Westfield Health British Transplant Games NewcastleGateshead 2015 (30 July -02 August), were officially the best Games ever, attracting 2500 spectators.

Graham Wylie, Chair of the Local Organising Committee for the Westfield Health British Transplant Games NewcastleGateshead 2015, said: “The NewcastleGateshead Games were the biggest ever. The atmosphere across the four days was electric, and I’d like to congratulate everyone involved and especially those taking part, on a truly fabulous event.

“Amongst the highlights was the opening ceremony, which embodied the spirit of The Games and reminded us what they are all about – a celebration of the transformative effects of transplantation and a way of honouring those who have given the ultimate gift of life. The people of Newcastle, Gateshead and the wider North East really backed The Games and I was delighted to see so much of the local community amongst the spectators and supporters.”
