Falkirk archer hits the bullseye, winning Gold at the British Transplant Games

4 August, 2017

Martin Strang, who works as a Team Leader for Bluefin in Edinburgh, took home the gold medal for archery at this year’s British Transplant Games.

The 45-year-old was among 2,500 competitors from all over the UK who converged on North Lanarkshire for the four-day, multi-sport event.

Martin, who is also the Director of Participation for The Scottish Archery Association was already a winner in his eyes though having paid tribute to the donor who gave him the chance to live his life as he does now.

He said: “The idea of the Games is to raise awareness of organ donation, celebrate having a transplant and, basically, being alive. I had a kidney and pancreas transplant in 2012 and am taking part in memory of my donor”.
