2012 Transplant Games

The Hunter Volunteer Centre and Transplant Australia are calling for Volunteers to make the Transplant Games the best ever. The series will take place from 29 September-06 October in Newcastle.

Transplant Australia is a national charity representing transplant recipients, donor families, living donors and others touched by organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

The Australian Transplant games are an opportunity for those who have received transplants - as well as donor families and living donors - to show what it has meant to them. Games events will range from sporting, such Athletics, Swimming, Tennis and netball, to social games such as ten pin bowling, lawn bowls, darts and table tennis.

Transplant Australia seeks the assistance from volunteers in activities that relate to the following areas: transport, childcare, events and sports.

The Games will be a great time to celebrate donors and recipients with great dinners and social events. There will also be a Gala celebration at Merewether Surfhouse to close proceedings.
