I became aware of LLGL just after I received my kidney transplant back in 2006, having been on haemodialysis for five years. I wore my new t-shirt with pride and, once I realised how much the organ donor register needed to be promoted and awareness raised, I decided to fundraise for the charity. I was then approached to become an Advocate and am thrilled to be part of such a fabulous organisation. Together we will make a difference to other people’s lives, just as transplantation has changed ours.
Outside the charity you will find me socialising over a few drinks or a nice meal, and I just love going to the theatre too. All of these are things which I would not have been able to do without my Gift of Life.
