The youngest member of Team GB says World Transplant Games are a chance to take on “whole entire world”

The World Transplant Games are coming to the North East this summer. Celebrated as the second chance of life, the Games demonstrate the success of transplant surgery and promote awareness of organ and tissue donation.

This year 2,237 athletes from 60 countries will be taking part in 15 sports across Tyneside and Wearside, including archery, athletics, tennis and even a virtual triathlon.

Phoebe Pace is Team GB’s youngest competitor.

This nine-year-old swimmer from Gateshead is rearing to compete in the pool against athletes from all over the world.

“Every single country you can think of it, it’s actually 63 countries”, she says. “So it’s basically 63 countries of this whole entire world that I’m competing against.”

Changes to the way we report squad fees on your monthly statement

We’re changing the way our systems report your squad fees as part of your monthly statement*.

Until now squad fees have simply been listed as a single item for all of your swimmers with just one amount. From September the fees for each swimmer will be listed as an individual item.

If you qualify for any discounts because you have three or more swimmers, this will now be shown as a credit on your statement making the discount you recieve clear.

There are no changes to the discounts offered to large families.

*Your monthly statement details the fees that make up your monthly direct debit payment.
