A WOMAN who donated a kidney to a work colleague is taking part in a bike ride to raise money for charity.

Katie Mason, 28, her twin sister Emma, and Kirsty Booth, 19, from Kexborough, will make the 310-mile London to Paris trip in August.

Katie, a teaching assistant at Worsbrough Common Primary, donated her kidney to Samantha White, 41, in April.

She is raising money for the Sheffield Kidney Institute, and Diabetes UK will also benefit.

The group has a target of £4,500 and have currently raised £750. Katie said they are also planning a raffle, car boot and bun sales to raise more funds.
