On April 9th 'Dialysis in the Country', was held to raise money for Kidney Health Australia and awareness about Chronic Kidney Disease. The event and art exhibition reeled in around 200 people.

Guests enjoyed listening to music in the countryside and viewing artworks by Brushed by the Soul - Louise Anderson. Ten canvases of different animals were on display each representing the individual personalities of Singleton's local dialysis patients and staff.

The day turned out to be glorious autumn weather and $3020 was raised for Kidney Health Australia.
