MARTIN Crouden has already saved the life of a stranger by donating one of his kidneys two months ago.

Now he is preparing to run 26.2 miles to raise awareness for the need for organ donations and prove it is possible to lead a normal, active life with just one kidney.

The 30-year-old from Halkirk had one of his healthy kidneys removed to save the life of woman he has never met.

Despite still recovering from his operation, he’s determined to take part in the Loch Ness Marathon in September to raise money for Kidney Care UK and to help other patients who are on the transplant waiting list.
