Jimmy Little was diagnosed with kidney failure in 2004  and spent some time on dialysis before receiving a transplant. His Foundation was set up in 2006 to help try and tackle kidney disease.

Recently, the renal unit at Armidale hospital was given a new chair after fund raising by Jimmy Little’s lead guitarist Cyril Green OAM and his wife Hazel OAM. The Local Bowling Club has also donated chairs.

Jimmy Little’s daughter Frances traveled to the region to make the delivery and also shared news of a new crowd funding initiative for the Foundation. www.startsomegood.com/jimmylittle
