“My name is Rebecca Smith, you won’t of heard of me however you will of my Grandad Ian Cundell. As you know he helped the kidney patients for a lot of years since my Grandma donated a kidney to Mum back in 1994.
He was a wonderful man who’s other passion was running. That is why when the opportunity arose to run the Jane Tomlinson 10k in Leeds in July I had no hesitation in running it in memory of him.

“My name is Michelle Donachie and I am working on J50 as Senior Sister till August 2017 on J50 at St James’, covering maternity leave. I would just like to say on behalf of Renal services how very grateful we were for all the beautiful Christmas presents you sent for the patients. The hard work and effort, firstly raising the money, the shopping and wrapping of the presents was greatly appreciated. I worked on Christmas Day and had the pleasure of giving out the presents and it reduced some patients to tears they were so moved by your kindness. They also wished to express their thanks for your kindness.
Once again please accept our gratitude for all the work you do.

On behalf of the association we hope you all have a good Christmas and prosperous new year!
