Justin Grace, GB Olympic Cycling Sprints head coach will be our guest speaker. After an international career in cycling and becoming one of Britain's most successful Olympic cycling coaches, Justin had a lifesaving transplant within weeks of the 2016 Rio Olympics, where he helped GB to one of their most successful medal hauls.
Graham Moore is Chairman of Westfield Health which has been an avid supporter of organ donation and the Transplant Games for a decade. Westfield Health will confirm their support for the Newport Games.
The British Transplant Games are the flagship project of the charity Transplant Sport and are an inspiring celebration of human courage and physical fitness. Over the past 35 years the Games have grown to a four day annual event with over 800 transplant recipients aged from 2 to over 80 years taking part in over 20 different sports with over 1,000 supporters, including donor families and living donors participating and attending the Games.
This highly emotive event demonstrates the success of transplant surgery and raises public awareness of how important it is for us all to discuss our wishes with our families and the need to increase organ and tissue donation.
Attendance is free and will include light refreshments
