Grand gift to char­ity

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Advertising Feature -

Gen­er­ous North La­nark­shire Coun­cil staff raised over £1000 for a chil­dren’s char­ity.

Around £1300 was col­lected for Kid­ney Kids by em­ploy­ees who took part in the Glasgow Great Women’s 10k Race and the West­field Health Bri­tish Trans­plant Games 5k donor run at Strath­clyde Park.

The Glasgow Chil­dren’s Kid­ney Kids team won 19 gold, 14 sil­ver and 16 bronze medals at this year’s games, which were held in sports venues across North La­nark­shire.

Melissa Fraser, from Kid­ney Kids Scot­land, said: “We are re­ally grate­ful for the sup­port given by North La­nark­shire Coun­cil and for all the hard work and ef­fort that has gone into rais­ing the money.

“Kid­ney Kids Scot­land will use this fund­ing to ex­pand and main­tain the newly-launched Home Hae­modial­y­sis Ser­vice in Scot­land.”
