The 2021 Transplant Games that were due to take place in Leeds in August have sadly had to be cancelled due to the Pandemic. They will be rescheduled for 2022 so keep a watch out for dates.
Today (9 March 2021) Transplant Sport has announced that the Westfield Health British Transplant Games due to take place in Leeds this summer will be postponed until 2022 due to ongoing challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic. Originally due to be held in venues across the city from 5-8 August 2021, the British Transplant Games have been postponed until summer 2022. Roger Burnley, Chair of the stakeholder board and CEO at Asda, said: “It is with deep sadness that we have taken the decision to move the British Transplant Games from this summer, to 2022. “Together with Games organisers, the stakeholder board did everything we could to make the event this summer a reality but due to ongoing concerns around the Covid-19 pandemic it has become clear we can’t guarantee that a physical event would be safe for competitors, their families and friends and the wider transplant community. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank sponsors, partners and friends of the Games from across Leeds and beyond for their ongoing support. We are already having exciting conversations and making plans to ensure that the Westfield Health British Transplant Games 2022 will be the best Games yet and can’t wait to finally welcome everyone to Leeds.

You may have seen on our social media channels we shared we shared a funding page set up by Gail one of our Physios to transform the outside space on Jim Quick ward. Well thanks to your generosity the transformation is complete. Gone are the miserable concrete flags, broken chairs and overgrown flower beds. Instead we have a lovely open tranquil space for our patients and wonderful staff to use. A massive thank you must go to Michael and Dom at Pentagon Play UK and T & S Riley who donated plants and all the seating and AstroturfSpecial Thanks to Gail who organised everything
