This August, the British Transplant Games 2018 will take place in Birmingham. It will see thousands of transplant recipients and their supporters take part and Lookers Vauxhall Birmingham will be behind them every step of the way as the Official Vehicle Sponsor.
From Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th August, transplant recipients of all ages will participate in a variety of sports at venues across the city to celebrate the life-changing impact of organ donation.
Lookers Vauxhall have provided a selection of vehicles for the weeks leading up to the games and across the weekend of the event to support logistics and movement between the venues.
Alan Collins, Operations Director for Lookers Vauxhall, said: “We are delighted to be the Official Vehicle Sponsor of the British Transplant Games, which raise so much awareness about the life-changing impact of organ donation. It’s truly inspirational to see so many transplant recipients thriving and competing in these games and we’re proud to do our bit to support them.”
The British Transplant Games aim to celebrate the life-changing impact of transplantation and raise awareness of the benefits that organ donation brings to both donor families and recipients, encouraging the public to discuss their wishes with their families and join the Organ Donor Register.
James Neuberger, Chair of the British Transplant Games Local Organising Committee, a Trustee of Transplant Sport and Consultant Transplant Physician at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, is looking forward to the celebrations.
He said: “We wouldn’t be able to put on the Games without the generous support of people like Lookers. Having them on board as Official Vehicle Sponsor will help us make sure the weekend runs smoothly and that as many transplant recipients can take part as possible.”
