ADPKD Information Day 2013

An information day on Polycystic kidney Disease was held at Birmingham City Hospital on 16th March 2013. This was attended by Ann Carter, LKPA secretary and her Husband Alan, LKPA Events coordinator. The day was split into sections, with guest speakers talking about the effects of Polycystic Kidney Disease and other issues that can also cause problems with this disease. There were also consultant surgeons discussing transplants. We were also joined from Leicester by the Leicester Exercise team who explained the benefits of exercise for renal patients. Alan commented that as a non - renal patient, the day was very informative.

LKPA Christmas Party 2012
Christmas party – a great night was had by all! The party was a resounding success and was
attended by approximately 130 people who all bought tickets and who were not disappointed. The
feedback has been very positive with many asking when the next one is taking place! We would like
to thank everyone who supported the event by either purchasing admission tickets or taking a
chance on our raffle. Many thanks also to Carol, Manageress of the Willowbrook sports and social
club who donated use of the venue free of charge. Entertainment was provided by Leicester based
band Function Junction who stepped in at short notice and certainly added to the success of the
event. Also to the delight of the children (and some adults) Santa dropped in on his way to Lapland
and Mickey and Mini mouse also made a special appearance. Several people also very kindly
donated sums of money. A massive thank you – the money raised will certainly be put to good use
and will certainly make a difference. We would also like to extend our thanks to all who donated
raffle prizes however large or small. They were gratefully received.

Skegness 2012
The LKPA party of patients, family and friends met in the main car park accompanied by a number of volunteer nurses along with their families for the trip to Skegness on a slightly cool and overcast Sunday in September. We were to travel in one large and one small coach. After a few inevitable minor hiccups were sorted out, we set off as near to 8am as planned. The journey to Skegness was straight-forward and uneventful and we reached there at about 10.30, two and a half hours later. We were dropped off outside the Embassy Centre, a very central and convenient location from where we were to be picked up at the end of the afternoon. Everyone went off in their family or friendship groups, some heading for the tea rooms while others went straight off to the sandy beaches, the amusement arcades or the attractions of the gift shops.

World Kidney Day 2012
To celebrate the many successful kidney transplants performed in Leicester, and highlight the importance for all of us to join the National Organ Donor Register, there was a balloon launch by over 200 transplant recipients, donors, people waiting for a transplant and staff from the John Walls Renal Unit and the Transplant Unit. Thanks to all of you who were able to come and support the launch – and also contribute to the nearly £600 raised on the day. Many others deserve ‘Thanks’ – the planning committee, the speakers, the backroom workers who blew up and netted (on a windy day) over 400 balloons, the band ‘JETS’ for the entertainment both outside at the balloon launch and later in the restaurant, and the many hands who set up, manned, and then dismantled the stands, NHS staff who took BPs etc. and others not specifically mentioned! This event was organised in conjunction with the UHL's Kidney Care Appeal (KCA).
