Glenavon Football Club is delighted to announce that the Northern Ireland Kidney Research Fund have agreed to be our charity partner for the 2019/20 season. Founded in 1971 by Waringstown couple, the late Mrs Josie Kerr MBE and her late husband Walter, the Fund seeks to support research and treatment of kidney disease in Northern Ireland.
Commenting on the partnership Chairman Adrian Teer said “We are honoured to have the Northern Ireland Kidney Research Fund as our charity partners for the season. Since it’s inception almost 50 years ago the Fund has not only undertaken invaluable work through fund raising to assist research around the prevention and treatment of kidney disease but also in promoting the life saving potential of organ donation. We hope that this partnership with ourselves will be of significant benefit to them as they approach their 50th anniversary in 2021.”
