Chris donated one of his kidneys to his wife Rachael earlier this year.

Thanks to Cllr Hogg’s campaign to raise awareness at events throughout the year, over 800 Kendal residents joined the organ donor list during the year. Across South Lakeland, around 2500 residents were added to the register. These additional sign-ups come on top of figures which were already in the top 25% of areas. Continue reading
