The Mayor of Dunstable presented a cheque for £1000 to the Renal Unit at the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
Councillor Liz Jones raised the money through fundraising events throughout the year and chose the Renal Unit as one her charities to support because she has seen the impact renal failure has on a patient and their family.
She said: “It has been a privilege to raise money for the unit and I look forward to seeing what they do with it.
“The Renal Unit at the Luton and Dunstable University was one of my three main charities I chose to support during my Mayoral year.”
The Matron of the Renal Unit, Joel Delfan, said: “It is amazing that the Mayor of Dunstable, councillor Jones, has chosen to support our Renal Unit, the money raised will help to buy equipment that will make the patients experience better.
“This donation and donations like this make a big difference to the patients and are a huge boost for our staff, who are dedicated to delivering the best possible care.
“Thank you to councillor Jones and everyone who has supported her to raise these funds, from all the staff on the unit.”
