I was on the young adult weekend the other week and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for funding it. It was an absolute blast and really took my mind off the bad week I had before going. I would recommend it to anyone with kidney related problems. I caught up with old friends and made new ones; I’m now 21 years post-transplant and try to help where I can.Daymon Johnstone
