GSTTKPA 5th Family Fun Day

The KPA’s 5th Family Fun Day was held on 9th June.

Once again, it was a great success, with over 120 patients, family members and kidney unit staff enjoying the afternoon at King’s College Sports Ground. As in previous years, people enjoyed the barbecue, face painting, raffle and other entertainment. But this year there was a new attraction: a London to Brighton stationary bike ride, using exercise bikes kindly loaned by Ballantyne Health Clubs.

The KPA is very grateful to everyone who made the event such a success. This includes the many people who donated raffle prizes, cakes and fruit; the staff at King’s College Sports ground; the patient transport team; George Brown and Teresa Durkin, the event organisers; and John Ogilvie, who arranged with Ballantyne for us to borrow the exercise bikes for the event.

We are already starting to plan next year’s Family Fun Day, and will share the date as soon as we can. In the meantime do get in touch if you have any ideas for Fun Day 2020 or would like to help with the organisation.
