TS Kids & Teens is a project funded by BBC Children in Need for children and young people with transplants, their siblings, and children of parents who have had a transplant.
We have local regional events and activities, and kids and family weekends. We encourage young people to keep healthy, support each other and be proud of their achievements.
Our Kids & Teens Organiser works with with the Hospital Team Managers and others to organise local and regional events. Look out for what is happening in the TSKids newsletter, on the Transplant Sport website, on the Transplant Sport Kids & Teens closed group on Facebook
and on Twitter @TS_KidsTeens.
Tackers – Transplant Adventure Camps for Kids
Each year Transplant Sport kids are fortunate enough to have the chance to take part on the Tackers Adventure Camp for Kids in Anzere, Swizerland. It’s an opportunity for you to go abroad on your own, meet other transplant children from around the world and learn about being responsible for your own medicaiton and living a healthy lifestyle.
If you are aged between 8 and 15 and would like to be considered for a place, contact Lynne Holt on: firstname.lastname@example.org. You are asked to contribute £350 to the cost of taking part.
“It lets you compete in what can be a competitive sport. When you have been poorly this is very important as often people treat you differently and any form of competition is not there. Life is about competition and I like to compete. But most of all you meet lots of new friends who understand you.”Joseph Hunsley age 10
