Award-winning fundraiser donates to Ninewells breast screening unit

Perth fundraiser June Craig presented a cheque for £2,400 to the breast screening unit at Ninewells.

June has previously raised money for the breast screening unit and other local charities, donating over £100,000.  She was awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queen’s New Year Honours list in 2017 for her fundraising activities.

Her latest donation of £2,400 was raised with the help of her friends and colleagues from the Ex-Servicemen’s Club in Perth.

Breast screening services manager Debbie Archibald said, “We are very grateful to June for her ongoing support for the Breast Service.  We are planning on using her donation to purchase some new equipment for our examination rooms which will benefit patients who attend the clinic.”
