Vicky, who as part of her role for FHLTA
encourages transplantees to take part in sport, said: "I still run and I still cycle.
Vicky Pettersen, one of the FHLTA members who helped organise the annual event, said: "People come from all over the country to the Freeman for a transplant so we had quite a mixed team.
Vicky underwent a double lung transplant almost 15 years ago at the Freeman Hospital and she decided to show her support to the good work done there by getting involved with FHLTA.
A fun-filled programme of events organised by the charity, Transplant Sport UK (TSUK) and sponsored by the Freeman Hospital's Heart and Lung Transplant Association (FHLTA
) has been planned for young transplant recipients and their siblings.
In his email he told the PM that if he won he would use the money to fund his trip to next year's World Transplant Games in Bangkok, and split the rest between the FHLTA
and the Tyne Youth Community Centre in Tynemouth.
