British Transplant Games - Siobhan Kelly takes part in record breaking 'Sloshathon'

24 Jan 2017

BLM partner and head of CSR, Siobhan Kelly recently took part in a world record breaking 'Sloshathon' as part of the preparations for the British Transplant Games 2017. The 'Slosh across Scotland' is the main fundraising campaign for the games which to date, has encouraged 40 groups to donate and hold their own 'slosh' event to raise money for the charity which helps deliver support for those who have undergone transplants and helps demonstrate the benefits of regaining fitness after a transplant. It also aims to increase public awareness of organ donation and thank and celebrate donors.

Organised on behalf of the charity Transplant Sport, the games are a four-day programme of sporting and social activities for people who have had an organ transplant.  Children as young as five and as old as 80 can compete in more than 20 sports.

Siobhan took part in the record breaking event which had the most people dancing the slosh at the same time - what a great achievement. It is particularly poignant as 547 people took part in whilst 540 patients in Scotland are waiting for a transplant.

So far the event has raised almost £4,000. Well done to everyone that took part.
