I joined Kidneys for Life in September 2020 which was certainly a strange time in all our lives but I was made to feel welcome by all the lovely supporters I spoke to. At that time I was mainly office based, talking lots on
the phone and exchanging a fair few emails! Following my previous career as Cabin Crew I was really excited about expanding my role and as time has gone on I have been lucky to be out and about more and more meeting lots of our wonderful supporters. Skydives, Abseils, Santa Dashes, Gala Dinner and Afternoon teas to name
just a few of the events I have been involved over the last 2 years and I can honestly say that each and every one of the supporters I have met have been brave, enthusiastic and super generous.

It has also been such a learning experience for me and I have learnt so much about patient’s journeys and stories which consistently gives me the incentive to plan events and fundraise for the vital research needed. I have also taken part in a couple of our events. Last October my daughter, Holly and I took part in the Firewalk which was an
epic experience. It just goes to show that if you put your mind to it you can do anything!

Going forward into  I am very excited about all the planned events; we have and also have school visits
planned to help share the story of Kidneys for Life and why we need to raise the vital funds.

If you would like any information about the events or would like to plan a school, college or community event
please do get in touch – I’d love to hear from you.
