Our very own Danielle's Flutterbyes photographer!
Grace is the first person we were able to help as a charity and so she has a very special place in our hearts.
When Grace asked us to help her with her studies by buying her a camera, we jumped at the chance. Grace is on dialysis and studying photography, which is not easy as dialysis takes so much of her time so being able to help Grace is fantastic for us.
Grace came with us to the Strata cheque presentation and brought her camera along, taking some amazing pictures, check these out!

Over 15 medals were won by our Fantastic 4, including a staggering 7 Gold.

Harry Potter and the dialysis patients!
In February, Danielle's Flutterbyes funded a trip to the Harry Potter Studios, London for the young adult dialysis patients at Nottingham City Hospital.
Nottingham city youth worker Terri Ellwood organised this fantastic trip and was keen to let us know how it went.
"...they all had an absolutely fantastic time, it was nice to do something together
away from the hospital, away from dialysis to have a laugh, get to know each other better
and just have fun"
Thanks as always to all those who have donated, our fundraisers and of course Terri for organising this event.
Oh Yes We Did...
Jodie Gregory a kidney patient at Royal Derby Hospital, asked for a little help from Danielle's Flutterbyes.
Jodie was due spend the Christmas period in hospital, but wanted to have some time with her family away from the confines of a hospital bed and a dialysis machine.
The Danielle's Flutterbyes team were more than pleased to help, so we arranged for Jodie to see the panto Cinderella, with a family meal to complete the night.
Although it was a small respite from her treatment Jodie and her family had a great time and it was great to put a smile her face evident by the fantastic pictures and messages Jodie had sent us.
Thanks to Terri Ellwood for helping, and again all those who contributed so generously to help make this possible.
