The charity Anthony Nolan will be a sponsor of the British Transplant Games this summer and will field its own team as part of a strategic PR move to raise the profile of the organisation.

‘Team Anthony Nolan’ will comprise bone marrow transplant recipients and donors.

The sponsorship move comes as the charity positions itself as a blood cancer charity with a focus on improving quality of life for people following a transplant, as well as finding donors.

The Games, which have been running since 1978, will be held between 30 July and 2 August in Newcastle and Gateshead and involve a series of Olympic-style events, including badminton, cycling and a mini-marathon.
 
Henny Braund, chief executive of Anthony Nolan, said: "We are very proud to partner with the British Transplant Games 2015. The Games will be a chance to celebrate life after transplant and the second chance that their donor has given them."
