KIDNEY KIDS DELIGHTED TO LAUNCH OUR VERY OWN TARTAN

 

 

It all began one cold day when the Kidney Kids team were wrapping Christmas presents in Ocean Terminal to raise funds.  One of our customers that day was top man at Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers (Edinburgh) and as we wrapped we chatted about how wonderful it would be to have a Kidney Kids tartan.

Fast forward and here we are launching our very own  tartan, designed by Nicolsons.  This beautiful tartan uses the Kidney Kids colours of blue and yellow and is totally unique to the charity.  We absolutely love it and hope you do too!

As well as the team having skirts incorporating the new tartan, we have a plethora of merchandise donning the design - from beautiful teddy bears and door stops to cushions, key fobs and even clocks.

If you are interested in picking something up .... perhaps for Christmas .... then head over to our shop to see the full
