Thanks from Tim

Earlier this year Barbara Kensett was appealing for sponsorship money from club members on behalf of her daughter-in-law, Gail, and grandson, Morgan, who were doing a sponsored run in aid of Kidney Wales to help research into kidney disease.

For those who don’t know, Gail donated a kidney to Barbara’s son, Stewart, in order to give him a new lease of life when he was desperately ill. Over the years, Gail and her friends have raised around £7,500 for Kidney Wales.

Barbara wishes to express her thanks to everyone who contributed and below is an official thank you from Tim (before you take to WhatsApp, I know that means Team!)
