A WORD FROM KAREN:

"Hi my name is Karen M, not to be confused with Karen B! Kidney Kids Scotland has been part of my life since my mum Sheena started the charity. On a part time basis I jointly manage the day to day running and corporate side. I seem to spend a lot of my time asking others for pennies.

CAROL GRAY - CHARITY FUNDRAISER

I AM :  A bit scatter brained and spend much of my time searching for house keys, car keys and sometimes even the car!! Not easily embarrassed (which comes in very handy when fundraising), a very good listener and a family gal!

 

A WORD FROM CAROL:

"I have worked at Kidney Kids Scotland for around 5 and a half years.  When I say ‘work’ it doesn’t feel a bit like work – it’s great to be part of a team who are all very passionate about what we do and the children we help.

In general my role is to help raise funds for the charity – but working for a small charity means that every day is different: – one minute contacting organisations for sponsorship; the next speaking to a family who have just received life changing news; to dressing up like a mad woman to help raise funds!"

LITTLE KNOWN FACTS:

I love to spend time with my boys

Since owning a cat I have turned into a crazy cat lady!!

I cook because I have to…..but I eat because I love to
