Kidney Research UK is the largest charity in the UK that funds research that focuses on the prevention, treatment and management of kidney disease with the aim to free lives from kidney disease.The vision of the charity is to free lives from the restrictions, fear, anxiety and life limiting nature of kidney disease.
The charity was founded in 1961 and was formerly known as the National Kidney Research Fund. Phyl and Dave Leonard who are part of the All Saints Benhilton Church community have a son Steve who has chronic kidney disease stage 4 and at sometime in the future will require dialysis and eventually a kidney transplant. They have asked us to appeal for used stamps which they collect in support of Kidney Research. They would really appreciate it if you would share their request with your friends and family.
There are three major categories of postage stamps you can collect.
- Modern UK stamps
- Old UK stamps
- Foreign stamps
Please send the stamps into school with your children, or alternatively they may be left in the box at the back of church.
