The Tayside Health Fund Gift Shop at Ninewells scooped the top award in the Best Gift Shop category at the Dundee Business Awards last weekend.

The Gift Shop was nominated by members of the public and over the last few weeks people have been busy voting for their favourite shop.

The 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 going to Tayside Health Fund.

Accompanying Tayside Health Fund fundraising support officer Gillian Moran to the event was eight of the volunteers who regularly support the shop.

Commenting on the award Gillian said, “It is really wonderful that The Gift Shop at Ninewells has been successful in the Dundee Business Awards.

“On behalf of all the volunteers I would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for us and helped us win this award.

“Picking up the Best Gift Shop Award is amazing and I am sure all our shop volunteers will be extremely pleased and proud of the work that they do. I would like to thank all of our volunteers and this award recognises their hard work and commitment which I am sure is responsible for the shop’s success.

“I would also like to thank patients, staff and members of the public who visit the shop as their generous support is invaluable.

“Winning this award means that we are automatically put forward for next year’s National Business Awards and we are all very excited about that.”

The Gift Shop offers a wide range of gifts 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, then it is well worth a visit.
