Stevenson Urges Support for British Transplant Games

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has highlighted his support for the British Transplant Games, taking place next July in Edinburgh.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“I am very supportive of the Games and I am certain that the event will improve greatly the public’s awareness of the value of organ donation, which I view as a very worthwhile cause indeed.

“The Games have proved successful in the past, seeing a marked improvement relating to organ donation and I’m hopeful that the same outcome will result after the Games next July.

“What we need to remember is that transplants save lives and these days, have a very high success rate. However, there is always the need for more donors. Obviously to stage a high-profile event of this nature and to guarantee its continuance takes funding. This continued success depends largely on the generosity of financial sponsorship. I know that the organisers are seeking sponsorship at present and I am hopeful that they meet their targets. For anyone wishing to find out more please check their website: www.tsagb.org."
