My story

[p]On 21st June 2021 Jim Thompson is setting off to paddle down 135 miles and through 45 locks of The River Thames SOLO in an inflatable canoe and sleep in a tiny tent every night. [/p][p]Money raised will go to supporting the Royal Free Hospital Kidney Unit and Kidney Research UK. [/p][p]In August 2019, at the age of 79, Jim became a living kidney donor for his friend Angela, who was suffering from chronic kidney failure. Jim's gift of a kidney dramatically changed her life for the better, relieving her from the need for dialysis three times a week just to stay alive. Read the full story here: https://www.facebook.com/AngelasKidneyQuest[/p][p]Jim and Angela's kidney transplant operations were carried out at The Royal Free Hospital and any donations will help to say thank you for the exceptional care received and the wonderful work they continue to do.[/p][p]Please support in any way you can![/p][p]Thank you![/p][p] [/p]
