Chippy celebrates transplant star's medal haul



An 18-year-old athlete backed by The Elite Fish & Chip Company in Lincolnshire has achieved his sporting dreams by returning from a major  competition with eight medals.


Declan Bennett, from Woodhall Spa, recently took part in the World Transplant Games in Malaga where he won six gold medals, a silver and a bronze, and also broke three competition records.

Declan was diagnosed with chronic renal failure – a condition that meant he needed a kidney transplant at the age of just seven - and received a living donor kidney transplant from his father Guy in 2009. The donated kidney enabled Declan to work towards a healthy lifestyle and return to the many sporting activities that he enjoyed prior to surgery.

The Elite Fish & Chip Company has assisted Declan with his training over the years with a number of donations.

Declan said: “I can’t quite believe it, we’ve exceeded all our expectations. The competition was much tougher this time as more people could afford to attend with the games being in Europe. I had a wonderful time and to bring back this number of medals is fantastic.

“I want to thank the Elite for their continued support – their donations over the years have made it easier to train and keep winning.”
