We raise awareness to promote living kidney donation


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

With a small group of friends, I'll be riding 500 miles in six days from the transplant centre in Edinburgh to the one in Oxford via several other hospitals on the way. I'm aiming to raise £1000 for the charity Give a Kidney . They want to raise awareness of the desperate need for more people to donate a kidney to an unrelated person with end stage renal failure. Having a kidney transplant will transform the life of someone with kidney failure who is otherwise dependent on dialysis several times a week to stay alive. Despite years of publicity there is still a shortfall in the number of kidneys transplanted from people who have just died, so Give a Kidney are raising awareness that healthy people can donate a kidney without putting their own health at risk. "One's enough"!

One of our group has already donated a kidney to someone unknown to them to help transform their life. He may be in his 70s but he's coming on this 500 mile ride with us to show you can still take part in an endeavour like this with just the one kidney!

Please will you help me to support this charity and in turn to help turn round a life for someone with end stage kidney failure? All money donated will go to the charity: I am paying my own expenses for the running of this trip.

Thank you!

There are almost 5,000 people waiting for a life-changing kidney transplant and yet millions of us have two healthy kidneys & need only one. We aim to raise awareness of non-directed living kidney donation to support those considering donation and to publicise why more donors are needed.
