Sheila Ford was able to give her husband John an extremely important present earlier this year, when she donated her kidney to him.
John began to suffer from kidney failure shortly after he retired, and at one point was taken off the donor list because he was so unwell.
Both husband and wife are now recovering well after the operation that saved John's life.
