I am asking all of our friends and family to help out for a great cause.
As you may know we raise money for Kidney Research UK. Recently a request was put forward for us to help me raise money for Bute Kidney Patients by doing White Water Rafting.
16 of us have now all plucked up the courage to do this but we now need sponsors. We have set a goal of 100 pounds each and if we reach our goal it will be a great help in funding a new dialysis unit.
Just to let you know a little about this charity, the patients in Bute have to travel 3 times a week onto the mainland to have dialysis. This makes it impossible for the patients to have any kind of life as they are travelling for hours and can be on the machine up to 6 hours and travel home again. One local lady was so depressed, and so I'll she couldn't cope anymore, stopped going to dialysis and shortly later lost her fight.
We will not let this happen again. Please, please help us, help them.
Any donations would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks everyone 💗💗
