Nottingham Venues Hosts Launch of the 2024 British Transplant Games


Nottingham Venues has become the Games Partner of the 2024 Westfield Health British Transplant Games and hosted its official launch at The Jubilee Hotel and Conferences on The University of Nottingham’s Jubilee Campus.

This summer, Nottingham will host the annual British Transplant Games and Nottingham Venues, the collection of independent venues within the University of Nottingham Campus, has announced that it is an official Games Partner for the event. 

The flagship event of charity Transplant Sport, the 46th annual British Transplant Games, is a multi-sport event, which aims to raise awareness of the life-saving benefits of organ donation.

Nottingham Venues provided the Jubilee Hotel and Conferences on the University of Nottingham’s Jubilee Campus as the backdrop to the launch event last month. Welcoming Games stakeholders, sponsors, partners, donor families, doctors and transplant recipients from across the UK, the launch event started the official countdown to events running in Nottingham from Thursday 1st to Sunday 4th of August 2024.

Nottingham Venues will provide accommodation for the 2000+ organisers/athletes across its collection of independent venues, including the 4* Orchard Hotel and the Jubilee and Conferences Centre. In addition, they will set up a team of volunteers to help during the 4-day event.

Tom Waldron-Lynch, General Manager of Nottingham Venues said: “We’re really excited about being a Tier 1 partner for the British Transplant Games 2024. We are incredibly proud of our region, our city and our accessible location, as well as our exemplary guest experience. This will be a landmark event for Nottingham this summer and we are looking forward to supporting the event and providing the perfect locations for members of the transplant community to prepare to compete, come back, relax and convene with other like-minded people.”

Seeking to reach and engage families and communities in Nottingham and the wider Midlands region, as well as spark vital conversations around organ donation and prompt people to share their decisions with loved ones, the Games will celebrate the gift of life and give the transplant community the opportunity to reconnect.

As well as promoting the organ donation, the event also encourages transplant recipients to stay active post-transplant. The Games Transplanted includes over 2,000 athletes ranging from ages three to eighty. Plus, more than sixty hospital teams across the UK, will represent their transplant unit with the support of family, friends and volunteers to compete in the Games, uniting the entire transplant community. 

Transplant Sport was delighted with the success of the 2023 British Transplant Games in Coventry and the Nottingham Games are set to be bigger and better than ever with events being held across Nottingham Trent University (NTU) Clifton Campus, University of Nottingham David Ross Sports Centre and Harvey Hadden Sports Village. Nottingham Tennis Centre, Bowls Club and Wollaton Park Golf Club are also hosting events.

Dr Paul Harden, Chair of Transplant Sport said: “I’m sure I can vouch for everyone involved in the Games in saying that we are all really looking forward to a wonderful event hosted in Nottingham as we know the facilities will be first class. I have no doubt this year’s Games will be the best yet through our ongoing support network from the stakeholder board, talented athletes and volunteers making it their mission to leave a legacy behind in Nottingham.”

The British Transplant Games are being staged with the help of continued support of Westfield Health, Kidney Care UK, Anthony Nolan, NHSBT and Extra Motorway Services. Local partners who have committed to financially support the Games include Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Charitable Trust, the Nottingham Organ Donation Committee Nottingham University and Nottingham Trent University, with Nottingham Venues committing to a Tier 1 partnership.

Tim Reddish, Chairman at the 2024 British Transplant Games, said: “This is a wonderful chance to express our gratitude towards the donor families and live donors who selflessly contribute to improving the quality of life for people all over the UK. I strongly encourage everyone in the vicinity of the Games to attend and witness first-hand the inspiring stories of the athletes and families involved this summer!”
