A WOMAN whose sister donated a kidney to a complete stranger is to join her on a charity bike ride from London to Paris.

Wendy Powell, who works for the University of Portsmouth, is to cycle alongside her sister Jenny Dale in the 310-mile bike ride to raise money for Transplant Links – a charity which sends UK medics to hospitals in developing countries to teach surgeons to perform living kidney transplants.
