The 'Big Kid' Weekend
We are still on a bit of a high after the success of the Kidney Kids 'Big Kid' weekend. The weekend was a chance for our older children to get together and bond over archery, paintball, water balloons, pizzas and mocktails.
We were very lucky to have Kate, Omid and Rebecca come along to share their stories with the group. Hearing from peers who have been through dialysis and transplant is so incredibly valuable to those who may be facing a similar journey.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who helped make it happen:
Firstly Kate, Rebecca and Omid for sharing their stories and inspiring children on a similar journey.
We would also like to thank Cumbernauld Outdoor Centre who have always been great supporters of Kidney Kids Scotland.
Next we would like to thank the Westerwood Hotel who have once again done a great job in making our event go smoothly. A special thanks goes to Chef who ran the pizza making session and of course who could forget the mocktails - thanks to Scott for showing the kids how it's done.
Without Bryan's coaches and Willie the driver, we would not have got very far, so a big thanks to them.
We would also like to extend a special thank you to Deepa, Diane,Jackie, Bernie and Michael for their support and last but by no means least we want to thank all of the families who came along, without whom the day would not have been possible.
