British Transplant Games 2017; Can You Help?

Posted on

Transp[lant Games 2017

UWS is a sponsor of the British Transplant Games – everybody who participates has had a transplant and the Games are both a celebration of life (donor families are also invited to attend) and a vehicle to raise awareness of the Organ Donor Register. Information about the Register can be found here

The 2017 Games will be held in North Lanarkshire 27th July – 30th July and we would love as many of our staff and students to volunteer as is possible. Students, in particular, benefit from volunteering because it develops their employability skills, enhances their CV’s and demonstrates passion and effort, devoted to a particular cause, all of which are of interest to employers.

So far, over 100 students have signed-up.

If you’d be interested in hearing more about this, please leave your contact details on this link and you’ll be contacted about a short training session being held in Paisley on 22ndMay, from 12-2pm and at Hamilton on 25th May, from 10am – 12pm.

The team involved with the Games, at North Lanarkshire Council, have been working very hard on this and UWS hopes that the involvement of our staff and students will contribute to the overall success of this worthwhile event.  If you would like to know more about activities and events in the run-up to the games, all information is here.
