Stockport Crusaders

A massive Thank you to the Stockport Crusaders Scooter Club who visited the Transplant Centre last week. They presented us with £525 which had been raised on the Manchester St Georges Ride. The fundraising was in memory of Johnny Bolland who was a Lung Recipient and an active member of the Club.

The Cranks on the Move

At the end of June our intrepid Cyclists “the Electric Cranks ” are taking part in a Coast 2 Coast Cycle Ride. The riders are all LVAD recipients so as you can imagine this ride is no mean feat as they have to carry all their battery packs and spares whilst riding. To sponsor them please click HERE

10 Year Anniversary

Many of you will know Natalie Kerr (pictured centre below) as she is a fantastic Ambassador for Organ Donation and Transplantation and has appeared on local Media reports numerous times. In February she celebrated her 10 Year double Lung Transplant. To mark the occasion she held a massive fundraising Party at the Whites Hotel at the Bolton Wanderers Stadium with over 250 people in attendance.

It was attended by local journalist Mel Barham who has reported on Natalie’s journey since before her transplant and also Coronation Star Andy Whyment.

Natalie’s Donors Brother gave a very emotional speech and there wasn’t a dry eye in the House. This was followed by a hilarious talk from Dr Kevin Jones who was the Dr who first diagnosed Natalie with Pulmonary Hypertension when she was expecting her 2nd Child.

It was a fabulous Evening raising £5180 which was split between New Start and Pulmonary Hypertension

Thank you Natalie and Family for your continued support.
