A Lincolnshire young farmer is raising money for charity while seeking a match for his own crucial kidney transplant.
Lincolnshire YFC county chairman Matt Denby, who needs a new kidney within months, is organising a dinner and dance to raise money for Kidney Research UK.
The 23 year old, from Alford, is aiming to raise £15,000 through a raffle and auction, with prizes including a three-day holiday on a private yacht and a bottle of whiskey signed by prime minister Theresa May.
“I’m not at a critical stage of total kidney failure or needing dialysis yet,” said Matt. “The plan is to hopefully have the transplant from a living donor before I need dialysis.”
Matt’s father and uncle are undergoing tests to see if either of them are a suitable match for his kidney transplant and at least five other genuine offers have come from YFC members as well.
