Include a Charity Week

Meryl on the Big Red Kidney Bus

Celebrating Include a Charity Week this week, from the 9 to 15 September, we encourage Australians to consider their future legacy. Merryl Cripps, one of our valued supporters, has made the generous decision to leave a gift in her Will to Kidney Health Australia, supporting the Big Red Kidney Bus.

Merryl has had kidney disease since birth, but it was only in the last four years, that it started to impact her noticeably. In June 2018, she started haemodialysis and three months later, Merryl was lucky enough to have a kidney transplant.

Merryl’s experience with kidney disease has inspired her to make the most of her life and to ensure that she does what she loves – travelling. It is this love that led Merryl to decide to leave a gift in her Will to Kidney Health Australia to fund the Big Red Kidney Bus, which provides a mobile haemodialysis service allowing those who require haemodialysis the chance to have a holiday whilst still receiving treatment.

“I’ve remembered Kidney Health Australia in my Will, because I know the difference services like the Big Red Kidney Buses make”, says Merryl.

Include a Charity aims to encourage more people to leave a gift in their Will to the charity that they hold dear to them. Kidney Health Australia are fortunate that a number of our supporters have chosen to leave a gift in their Will to Kidney Health Australia. We are most grateful for their foresight and commitment to future generations. We would love you to consider taking this significant and generous step.

If you have any questions about remembering Kidney Health Australia in your Will, please get in touch with Roberta Armitage, Bequest Officer on roberta.armitage@kidney.org.au or phone 03 9674 4383.
