BIG FUN RUN COVENTRY
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.
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.

Spirit of the Song
I was lucky enough to attend this great concert with Vivienne at Blue Coat Church of England School and Music College, Coventry. We were entertained with uplifting songs by an extremely talented choir led by Musical Director Andrew Smith. Thanks for a wonderful evening and in doing so raising funds for our KPA.

"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.
“ 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.
