nkf - Kidney Patients UK

Captain Micky Boot - 2019










The National Kidney Federation is unique because, although there are a large number of kidney charities, the NKF is the national kidney charity actually run by Kidney Patients for Kidney Patients.
Most Renal units have a Kidney patient Association (KPA) specifically attached to that unit, however, in January1979 these independent charities realised that they needed a national organisation to fight their cause as renal provision was in dire difficulties, overstretched, and under resourced. If ever there was a case of post code provision, renal disease was it! Currently there are 69 KPAs and they come together as the controlling Council of the National Kidney Federation, the KPAs are both the ears and the eyes of the NKF and its controlling force. Patients are the Officers of the NKF, the Executive Committee of the NKF and the workforce of the NKF. Apart from six members of staff, all other personnel are either Kidney patients or carers of Kidney patients.

Unlike other kidney charities, the NKF has only two roles campaigning for improvements to renal provision and treatment, and national patient support services.

CLIC Sargent and Diabetes Guernsey

Captain Keith Dye - 2018







A Charity that supports children and young people with cancer and offers support to their families. The Charity has built a new Home from Home close to Southhampton Hospital, called "Jean's House", for families to use, while their child is receiving cancer treatment. 

This is not the only Charity that Keith was supporting.

It is a local charity which aims to help people to 'live well' with diabetes. They aim to support people with all types of diabetes and their families in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. Their purpose is to ensure that local people with diabetes and their families have support, to raise awareness of diabetes and provide education for everyone. Diabetes Guernsey aims to raise funds to achieve these goals through various events.

Both Charities received an equal amount from the amount raised from L'Ancresse Golf Club Members - a fantastic amount and thanks to you, the Members for your generous support throughout the year.
