The Big Red Kidney Bus is back in Nelson Bay, and in time for the school holiday.
The mobile dialysis unit provides renal services at selected popular holiday locations, allowing people requiring regular dialysis treatment the opportunity to holiday with family and friends.
This is the second year the bus, which has been operating in Victoria since 2014, has provided its services in Nelson Bay.
The bus rolled into the Bay on Monday, April 16 and will remain at Halifax Holiday Park until Saturday, June 9.
The Lions club of Toronto has bee raising funds to secure a permanent NSW-based bus. So far Lions has raised $200,000 for a Big Red Kidney Bus.
A majority of the funding for the project has come from Lions clubs throughout NSW.
To book a spot on the bus go to kidney.org.au. Bookings are essential.
