Jack was born with a rare kidney disorder, for the first 6 months of his life he was in Great Ormond Street Hospital . When he was 4 years old he was given the `gift of life` a kidney transplant and started to eat real food and join in p.e at school. This was after 2 heart operations, and numerous medical procedures. He started competing in the British Transplant games in 2005 and every year he came home with medals in swimming athletics and badminton. Jack started to have lessons at Redbridge Sports and Leisure in 2008, which was where I first met him. He is a thoroughly nice young man and we helped him and his family get the funds to send him to the World Transplant Games in Australia in 2009, he came home with the gold medal in badminton. Again in 2010 he won the British T.G. and he has returned from the World Transplant Games in Sweden with 3 gold medals in Badminton singles, doubles and table tennis! Jack is a real ambassador for Britain, the youth of today and our sport and shows how you can overcome adversity. Pat Ormes. Badminton Development Officer Redbridge Sports & Leisure.
