The Great British Transplant Cycling team are fundraising in a bid to represent their country at the European and World Transplant Games.
Unlike other teams representing Great Britain, the Transplant Team does not receive any funding from the National Lottery or governing body. They are 100% self-funded and rely on friends and supporters to help fund their cause. All of the riders on the team have had life supporting organ transplants either heart, liver, kidney or bone marrow.
At present they are fund raising for the World Transplant Games in Argentina in August 2015. There are 15 riders on the team (including the superb Ottilie Quince who is a finalist in the TWC Awards 2015) with a minimum funding cost of £2,500 per rider (which doesn’t even include any kit) so they are calling on donations no matter how big or small to make this happen.
