“Young children suffering from liver disease often have no hope for a bright future unless they are able to receive life-saving liver transplants”
Young children suffering from liver disease often have no hope for a bright future unless they are able to receive life-saving liver transplants. The Leeds Little Livers Campaign centres on raising money for these vital operations. Life after these operations is not always easy, with physical activity being a challenge, and the Little Livers Campaign also supports these children in post-op activities, such as the British Transplant Games.
The Little Livers Campaign, a charity very close to our hearts here at Party For The People, helps out the patients at Leeds Children’s Hospital. So far we have managed to donate a total of £2500 to support families whose children require, or have undergone, liver transplant surgery.
A portion of the money raised went directly towards providing transport and accommodation to the 2012 Transplant Games. The annual Games are four days of sporting competitions that were held just after the Olympics, the idea being to raise awareness and encourage people to ‘carry the card’ and sign up to the organ donor register.
It is comprised of athletes who have received a transplant of some sort, and is a chance to thank donor families for their kindness. It is not only a celebration of life, but provides the kids enrichment in the belief that they don’t have to be restricted by their medical conditions.
