A fundraising lunch at Bella Vista in Milnrow helped raise 6,000 in aid of Kidney Research UK. The event was organised and hosted by Pam Grice who has been raising awareness and money for the charity ever since she lost her husband to kidney disease in 1967.

Sons David and Andrew Moorhouse also inherited the disease from their father but have subsequently been treated thanks to generous kidney donations, David from wife Maggie and Andrew thanks to god-daughter Deborah Howarth who signed up to a paired donation scheme.

As well as raising much needed funds, the dinner was also a thank you to Maggie and Deborah as well as the surgeons and doctors who treated David and Andrew.
