A GROUP of scientists from the University of Glasgow is encouraging the city to 'Go Purple' this March to help raise awareness of one of the UK's least-known life-threatening diseases.
The group is involved in research projects, funded by Kidney Research UK, which could lead to a better understanding of kidney disease.
The charity is launching its Go Purple campaign to coincide with World Kidney Day on March 13 to help raise cash for better treatments.
The researchers are encouraging everyone, from office workers to school children, to organise purple-themed events.
Liz McGuiness, Kidney Research UK's Fundraising Manager for Scotland, said: "People in Glasgow can help make a real difference to the lives of those with kidney disease by getting behind our Go Purple campaign."
