Countryside Services supports local kidney patients

A charity donation from Countryside Services will help to support local kidney patients and their families across Northern Ireland.

The donation came about following quad calves being born to farmers John and Jo-Anne Dobson in Waringstown.

This rare occurrence, estimated at 11.7 million to one, resulted in three bull calves and one heifer – Angus, Brody, Cooper and Daisy – who are all sporting Caisley tags specially lasered with their names and numbers.

Jo-Anne, who is a living kidney donor and Northern Ireland Ambassador for Kidney Care UK, said: “We want to send a huge thanks to Ian, Ruth and everyone at Countryside Services for their generous donation to help the ongoing work of Kidney Care UK.

“As a charity Kidney Care UK provides dedicated emotional and financial support and guidance to kidney patients and their families at what can be the most difficult times in their lives.

“As I know through my experience with my youngest son Mark, kidney disease can strike anyone at any time in life.

“At Kidney Care UK we make it our mission to ensure that no one faces kidney disease alone by providing patient grants, holiday and respite breaks, supporting kidney units, campaigning for better services and positive change for patients and by conducting patient-centred research.

“But we couldn’t do this without the continued generous support we receive from organisations and the public.”
