FRIENDS and family of a man who died as a result of kidney failure have provided a dialysis unit with some much needed funds for a revamp.

Marc Dixon, formerly of Winchester Crescent, Gravesend, and father to daughters Ellie, eight, and Keeley, five, died in September aged 31, after spending four years in and out of the unit at Darenth Valley Hospital.

Natasha Crowley, Nicola Medhurst, Sally Thompson, Zoe Dixon, Gill Tidman and Vanessa Finch who raised in excess of £5,800 presented the hospital with a cheque last week.

The Dartford Working Man's Club, Essex Road, Dartford, offered its hall for freefor a charity auction to raise the funds.

Mr Dixon always felt that dialysis patients, who are hooked up to medical equipment for hours at a time, should have TV screen to while away the hours.
