£325raised of £200 target by 19 supporters

    Weʼve raised £325 to Help fund the Lanarkshire Kidney Patients Association. The Renal Unit in Monklands Hospital

    Airdrie, United Kingdom
    Funded on Tuesday, 31st October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The purpose of this fundraising is to support The Renal Unit in Monklands where my Auntie passed away late 2015. My Auntie Janet McBride was more like a second mum to me - along with my Gran - she helped bring me up as both my parents worked.

    I would go to Blackpool with her every Fair Fortnight from the age of 3 to 11 years old and loved it. Every night same routine - shows first for me then off to the Bingo with her and my gran.

    My aunt was the most generous person I have ever met and her generosity continued towards my children. Sadly she was diagnosed with Kidney failure in her later years and spent a great deal of time in and out of the Renal Unit in Monklands Hospital. She never complained once.

    I would like to support the charity through this bike ride as it is close to my own heart. It allows patients with terminal kidney problems to enjoy a meal/day out. It also provides funds to buy much needed equipment like scanners and wheelchairs. It is an invaluable support to the patients' families who are in financial need by helping with travelling expenses to and from the hospital. It also helps fund patient's gifts at christmas. Please donate for a worthy cause - thanks

    As a keen cyclist , I am always up for a challenge! This year is the first time I have entered the Glasgow to Edinburgh Cycle - Pedal for Scotland. I have chosen the 'scenic' route - 93 miles through Scotland's rolling countryside. Let's hope it stays dry!
