A keen hockey and tennis player who has battled kidney failure will represent Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) at the British Transplant Games in August.

Flora King, 16, from Granborough will join the GOSH renal team to represent the hospital and compete against athletes from other UK hospitals in tennis, ball throw, long jump and table tennis. She will also be helping to run the mini tennis event for five to twelve year olds. The games take place in Bolton from August 7 to 10.

Flora said: “I’m so happy to be going to the British Transplant Games again this year. As well as competing in my events, I’m looking forward to helping out with the mini tennis event – it’s such a fantastic sport and I hope we can get lots of children excited about playing tennis.”
