Toolstop Charity Donations Update

Exactly one year ago, Calum Kegg, MD at Toolstop donated his right kidney to his sister Kirsty. He wrote a book - Seven Days to Save a Life - about what he Seven Days to Save a Lifedescribes as a "Thrilling Experience". READ THE BOOK HERE

Kirsty had been diagnosed with kidney failure a few years earlier and since the transplant now lives a pretty normal lifestyle. In fact, exactly a year after receiving her new kidney she will run the Kyles10Miles fun run hoping to raise some serious cash for Kidney Research. DONATE HERE

Just after returning to work after the operation Calum realised that both his and Kirsty's lives were so much more improved and pledged to commit a percentage of the Toolstop profits to various charities to hopefully raise awareness of what these organisations do to enrich the lives of less fortunate people than himself, and thats what he's done.

Kidney ResearchIn the last year 25,000 has been added to the Toolstop charity account and charities such as Haven, Cash for Kids, Headway, Acorn Childrens Hospice, Yorkhill Childrens Hospital and Kilrymont Rotary Club have benefitted.

And, from 15th September, Toolstops Neil Bruce along with Calum and 28 other amateur ramblers will walk the West Highland Way with the hope of raising 50k for the Kidney Research charity. DONATE HERE or HERE
West Hilghland Way

Our own mark Hunter will walk the Great Wall of China at the end of September and Toolstop has donated 1000 for his charity, St. Andrews Hospice.
