Transplant Australia NSW & ACT
The NSW committee of Transplant Australia has members from all corners of NSW who meet for recreational, sporting and social events on a regular basis. Our membership base spans across all ages from families with young children to the older among the ranks and every age in between.
TA NSW meets about once a month at different venues across NSW. Often, these get togethers incorporate an activity such as ten pin bowling, lawn bowls, golf, archery, eight ball, petanque or a picnic day, as a means to bring our community together. Each activity is run to encourage participation and existing skill levels are not necessary – we always welcome newcomers and beginners!
Dooleys Lidcombe Catholic Club, in Sydney’s western suburbs, proudly supports the branch and we have adopted the Club as our own Club House. The NSW branch also stages the annual fundraising Miracle Dinner at Dooleys to assist transplant recipients to attend the Australian and/or World Transplant Games. Many NSW members have attended both the Australian and World Transplant Games and find them a wonderful and worthwhile experience. The Games are a special time to demonstrate the high quality of life that is achieved following a transplant. We would love to have you a part of our NSW team!
At each of these events run by TA NSW, people are able to chat with others who have been through similar circumstances, including family members of deceased donors, living donors, transplant recipients and supporters.
So if you are thinking about getting involved – stop thinking about it! We can’t wait to meet you at our next event.
