Council staff raise charity cash
North Lanarkshire Council staff raised hundreds of pounds for a children’s charity which took part in this year’s British Transplant Games.
Over £1300 was raised for Kidney Kids by workers who took part in the Glasgow Great Women’s 10km Race and the British Transplant Games 5km donor run at Strathclyde Park.
The Glasgow Children’s Kidney Kids team took 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 for all 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.”
Kidney Kids Scotland was started in 2000 to help children with renal illness and their families.
