On World Kidney Day, 9 March, the charity Kidney Wales will be featured on Nation Radio to publicise its fundraising initiative, ‘Bring a Pound to Work Day’.
The charity is asking local businesses, schools, colleges and groups to all round up their work colleagues, friends and family and each take in £1 in to work on 9 March.
Kidney disease affects over 10,000 people in Wales and is increasing, particularly in young children. The illness dramatically changes the life of the patient and their families.
£1,436 can help fund a research assistant into the best ways to diagnose and treat kidney disease and patient wellbeing. While £10,000 can go a long way to helping fund lifesaving equipment for units across Wales.
