Kidney Wales Foundation were informed today that Leigh Halfpenny has dedicated his British and Irish Lions prize money triumph as player of the series in Australia to the Kidney Wales Foundation.
British Lions and Irish Lions Leigh Halfpenny said “ I was honoured to be made a Patron of Kidney Wales in my early international playing days. The Charity does great work and I have visited the Children’s Kidney Centre to see firsthand the children waiting for a transplant and on dialysis. I was honoured to be made player of the series and received funds to give to my chosen charity - the Kidney Wales Foundation is my chosen charity.”
The Charity confirmed that payment of $3000.00AUD will be made by the Australian Rugby Football Union who had been in contact this week.
Roy J Thomas of Kidney Wales said “ Leigh is role model and from first meeting him some years ago I never doubted his ability and commitment. He has integrity in all he does and this shines through on the rugby field. Everyone who supported the Lions watched in awe as Leigh’s inspiring performances in Australia led them to victory. We were proud of him as a Patron as are his family and friends.”
The Charity confirmed the funds will go to the Children’s Kidney Unit in the Univeristy Hospital of Wales. The next event is the Cardiff 10k on September 9th. www.cardiff10k.com
