Fun day to raise cash for Blackburn Mayor's appeal

First published in News

BLACKBURN with Darwen mayor Salim Mulla’s family have arranged a fun day to raise funds for his official charity kidney care appeal.

The appeal aims to raise £50,000 for two dialysis machines for the Blackburn Royal Hospital as borough residents currently have to travel to Preston or Accrington for renal care.

Coun Mulla made raising cash for the machines his mayoral charity after his wife Sayeeda suffered kidney disease and needed dialysis while waiting six years for a transplant. He paid a visit to the hospital just before Christmas, chatting with patients and staff.

The fun day will be on February 16 at Audley Sports Centre on Chester Street.
