Reckless Abandon Media's story

Reckless Abandon Media are a video production company specialising in creating visually stunning and quality content. Being based in Peterborough, around the corner from our head office, we naturally requested a meeting to discuss our needs for promotional film.

Reckless Abandon Media then worked with us throughout 2019 to create a catalogue of stunning videos for our Bridges Walks series. They’re a great team to work with and we would recommend them to others.

Opus Property Maintenance's story

Oliver from Opus Property Maintenance approached Kidney Research UK in 2019 looking for ways he could support. Inspired by the fact that he has been able to live a relatively normal life thanks to a transplant, he wanted to give back through his business.

Oliver has now had the “proudly supporting Kidney Research UK” logos printed on his fleet of vans, showing his customers that the business is supporting lifesaving research. Oliver and the team at Opus also plan to get involved in several fundraising events, namely Tough Mudder, in order to raise £5,000 for Kidney Research UK. We can’t thank Oliver enough for all that him, his wife and the team at Opus are trying to do!

Wollen's

Wollen's Solicitors

The law firm that thinks in full colour.

Wollen’s story

Kidney Research UK was first made aware about leading law firm Wollen’s when an article emerged about CEO, Chris Hart’s journey with kidney disease. Chris’ wife Liz had amazingly donated a kidney to Chris just before Christmas 2018. By the end of January 2019, Chris and the team at Wollen’s were walking eight miles along the south coast to raise money for Kidney Research UK.

After this, our partnerships team met with Chris for a coffee in London. It was clear that Chris had a passion to do more and thus a plan and a partnership were formed. Fast forward to December 2019 and Wollen’s were hosting their very first quiz night, The Wollen’s Solicitors Quiz, at the very lovely Rockfish restaurant in Exeter.

2020 holds more exciting times with Wollen’s as they plan for their first ever golf day, taking place in the summer. It’s so exciting for us as an organisation to watch this company explore its first ever partnership with a charity. A partnership that is allowing them to open new avenues to engage clients, by inviting them to brilliant new events throughout the year. We’re so pleased to have you onboard Wollen’s.

Exclusive Networks' story

Exclusive Networks are long standing supporters of Kidney Research UK and we’re proud to have an on-going partnership with them. Staff member Sam Blackburn has had a big part to play in this. Sam is a kidney patient, member of our lay advisory committee and all-round fantastic advocate and supporter of the charity.

As of the end of 2019, Exclusive Networks raised over £100,000 in the last 5 years. An absolutely incredible achievement! As a business, they have had members of staff running the London Marathon, tackling Tough Mudders, putting on bake sales and much more. What they’re renowned for in the Kidney Research UK office however, is their epic annual football tournament.

Each year the company invites its vendors, clients and suppliers to take part in a fun-filled day of football. The action is always followed up by a free dinner, auction and games and is an important date in the calendar for all involved.

Our partnership with Exclusive Networks is one we are proud of and one we’re excited about year after year. A big thank you goes out to everyone involved and thank you Sam for turning your passion for beating kidney disease into a fantastic selection of events.
