The gift shop in Ninewells Hospital has reached the final of the Dundee Business Awards 2018 in the Best Gift Shop category.
The gift shop can be found on the concourse of the hospital and is staffed by a fantastic team of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers with all proceeds from shop sales going to Tayside Health Fund.
Fundraising support officer for Tayside Health Fund Gillian Moran said, “It is wonderful that the gift shop at Ninewells has been nominated for the Dundee Business Awards and I am sure all our volunteers will be pleased that the work that they do to make the shop such a success is recognised.
“I would also like to thank patients, staff and members of the public who visit the shop as their generous support is invaluable.
“The gift shop offers a wide range of products including toys, greeting cards, jewellery, scarves and bags. So if you are visiting the hospital and looking for a little gift to take to someone, it is well worth a visit.”
Success in these awards depends on feedback from mystery shoppers but also from the number of votes our gift shop receives. If you would like to support us you can vote for the gift shop on the Dundee Business Awards website.
Tayside Health Fund is a registered charity which is generously funded by donations and legacies from patients, families, carers, the communities of Tayside and other organisations. Tayside Health Fund is the brand name for the Tayside NHS Board Endowment Fund and holds endowment property and funds for purposes relating to health services or research.
Over the years a wide range of projects have been supported by Tayside Health Fund, from small bids for improving patient comfort right up to projects such as the introduction of free wifi for patients, the sponsorship of our STAR Awards which recognises the dedication and hard work of our staff, as well as refurbishment of teaching facilities for undergraduates.
This year, Tayside Health Fund also sponsored a penguin in Maggie’s Penguin Parade and our ‘Capguin Scott’ can be found at Broughty Ferry harbour.
