Social media toolkit

This Christmas we need your help more than ever.  That’s why we want as many supporters as possible to join us and grab your Santa hat, Christmas jumper and lace up your trainers with tinsel for our brand-new Christmas campaign “Step into Christmas”.

Walk, run or dance 8,500 steps every day throughout December. All we ask is that you try to raise £150 for Kidney Research UK and get stepping in your favourite festive gear!
