    I have it on good authority that our @peggy has won us a bronze in the 5,000 metres road race.

    This I can confirm! A little ungraciously though!

    Wow. .. that's truly brilliant @peggy

    For you to do that is brilliant in its own right, ....amazing

    But not forgetting that these are the "Transplant Games"

    It's just a reminder perhaps to nudge people into signing up to donate their organs.

    @peggy and all of those taking part in the games would not have been able to do so at all without the gift of organ donation.

    Just do it - https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk/register-to-donate/register-your-details/ - and a bit of you might win something.




    Today was the final day and the results don't seem to be available yet - I'm sure we'll find out what we won shortly, though.

    Just by taking part, they've all won their own personal battle, and their own personal achievement.

    Well done @peggy and to everyone that has embraced the life that they've been given

    Checking back would suggest that it might be a 50 metre swimming event.

    It was gold for the 800 meter track.
    Thank you for your support. It was a bit of a messy end with paramedics on standbye as I wasn't too well but I'm absolutely over the moon! Powered by the gift of life

    Hi @peggy
    Just read in the Express and Star that you are looking to fundraise £1,500 to compete in the 2018 European Transplant Games and the same again for the 2019 World Transplant Games.

    Do you have a justgiving site where we can send money?

    Also anyone up for doing a group Stafford Forum sponsorship for Peggy? Not sure how much this would cost though???
