The 2013 Westfield Health British Transplant Games was a multi sport and cultural programme, designed to promote the benefits of organ donation and transplantation.
The Games take place each year, are attended by around 2,000 people and are organised by the charity TSUK and Sheffield-based sports and leisure consultancy MLS Contracts. The 2013 Games local organising committee, chaired by Graham Moore from Westfield Health, and the Games executive worked hard to engage all areas of the community in the Sheffield City Region.
Successes included recruiting and training more than 300 volunteers to support and deliver the Games, attracting 500 people from the local community to raise money for the Sheffield Hospital Charity by taking part in the Star Donor Run, organising 15 Awareness Days at businesses and other organisations, where people who had had transplants attended and shared their experiences. They also recruited almost double the number of organ donors they were targeting.
