Renal Services at UHCW raised funds for us by running and walking the Big Fun Run, Coventry. This took place on Sunday 9th September 2018 at the War Memorial Park.

What a fantastic achievement for the renal staff who took part. The team, in their bright orange sashes, made a real splash on the day. Everybody went at their own pace, and Dr Fletcher made a quick getaway. Viv, Grace and Kate turned up to watch, and it was great to see such sterling efforts from everybody who took part. After expenses, the Run raised the amazing total of: £6,110.16

Part of the money raised came from a fantastic donation by Radio Panj, of £1,100.00. Vivienne received the cheque, with a number of representatives from Radio Panj and CWKPA. The CWKPA Committee says a big thank you to all those who were involved in the Big Fun Run, and especially to Mina Thakor who started the whole thing! Well done, all - a great result after a fantastic effort.

Photographs from the Fun Run can be found on the CWKPA Facebook Page:

Abbie's Skydive Fundraiser

Update:August 4th, 2014

Abbie has safely completed her skydive and in doing so has exceeded her fundraising target of £750. Abbie has raised a whopping £811.00 so far.

Well done Abbie and a great big Thank You from us all!

Posted: February 1, 2014

"On 18th April, I am doing a skydive to raise money for the Coventry and Warwickshire Kidney Patients’ Association.

The CWKPA is a charity very close to my heart; the CWKPA supported my dad from the first time he went into renal failure 20 years ago, through his transplant and continues to support him as he goes into renal failure again." Abbie Bird

"Thank you so much Abbie for fundraising for us and good luck with your skydive. I do hope you enjoy it." Ed.

Charity Art Exhibition

Posted: December 5, 2013

UK Artists and AMA joined together in November for the first time to organise the charity art exhibition at All Saints Church, Leamington Spa as part of their annual Arts Festival.
The exhibition was very well received and we were pleased to have sold eleven pieces of art and all of the handmade postcards, bar one. Fiona Williams, from the All Saints Arts Festival committee, sends her thanks:

“ This is a very belated ‘thank you’ for you, the Warwickshire Artists and the Midland Artists for mounting such a lovely exhibition in All Saints.  It was quite humbling to see the range of talent displayed in the church aisles and wonderful to have the opportunity to enjoy the works on show.  We are so grateful to you for providing such an important part of our modest Arts Festival weekend – it was great to have so many more people come into church and know that they were going to enjoy such a high quality exhibition. The café reaped the benefits too!” 

The exhibition was opened at a private view by National Kidney Federation Advocacy Officer Mark Davis who gave an enlightening speech highlighting the work of the Coventry & Warwickshire Kidney Patients Association & NKF and the facts and his thoughts about organ donation.
The Coventry & Warwickshire Kidney Patients Association, Myton Hospices and All Saint’s Church were the three charities to benefit from the profits.
