Celebrating our first in-person event since 2019

We were delighted to welcome old friends and more recent donors to our recent Supporters’ Event in the beautiful setting of the Crypt in the Green, St James’s Church in Clerkenwell, London.

Guests heard an interesting update on the new Living Kidney Donor Programme from Emma Hotchkiss, Programme Lead, and Eoin Buckley, Marketing and Communications Manager, both from Kidney Research UK.

Lisa Burnapp, Associate Medical Director, Living Donation and Transplantation at NHS Blood and Transplant was sadly unable to be with us, however she updated guests on the latest in living kidney donation via a video link.

Dennis Carver gave a summary of the hugely successful Transplant Tour which raised £34,000 for our charity this year and guests were the first to hear that there will be a new Tour in 2024! So if there are any cyclists out there, please get in touch as Dennis is looking for new riders for a new route next year.

Our final guests to present were members of the Black Living Donor Choir, all of whom have donated a kidney to a family member. They shared the importance of raising the profile of living kidney donation within in the Black community.
