After totting up all the donations, we were delighted to accept a cheque for £561.50 this week. The Wessex Renal Unit based at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth received the other half of the donations.
The walk was inspired by the bravery and fortitude of Amy, daughter of Wilson Practice receptionist Teresa Alexander (pictured centre), who sadly lost her 27-year battle against kidney disease last year.
Mandy Balfour, Community and Events Fundraiser at Kidney Care UK (also pictured), who received the donation on behalf of the charity, added “As a charity we receive no government funding so we rely on the kind generosity of supporters like Teresa and everyone from the Wilson Practice. The team have really gone the extra mile and without incredible acts of kindness like this we wouldn’t be able to support thousands of kidney patients throughout the UK so we wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part.”
