DaBKA had a small display in the reception area with most of the committee present and of course Captain Kidney, there was also a raffle for an Easter egg & rabbit with the winning number being 35. It was a great day and thanks to DRI staff for all their help during the day.
World Kidney Day 2017
World Kidney Day 2017 was celebrated in Doncaster Royal Infirmary by a brilliant presentation by Becky Stevenson and Sarah Childs, two of the wonderful nurses on the renal ward 32 who together held an information and educational display outside of the hospital restaurant to give free blood pressure checks and provide information on healthy eating, diet, exercise and diabetes related items. They invited DaBKA to attened to showcase what we do for patients and their families. The day was a great succsess, many people stopped and asked questions, and had blood pressure checks, some were suprised with the results, and even the renal consultants took part.
The next big event will be the 10th anniversary celebrations of the renal unit being opened on the 27th of March. Everyone is welcome, there will be some refreshments and a chance to ask questions and meet both staff and volunteers from our charity. The event runs from around 10.00 through to 15.00. Hope to see you all there.
