Specialist bath seats donated to Glenlaw House
The Glenlaw Parents Group presented two specialist bath seats to Glenlaw House at Kings Cross to help children feel more comfortable to enjoy their bath time.
Glenlaw House provides respite and short breaks for children and young people aged up to 18 with severe profound learning disabilities and complex healthcare needs. The facility provides care to 34 children and young people from across Tayside and north east Fife.
The two specialist bath seats costing £730 were bought with money raised from the Glenlaw Parents Group’s Open House and a coffee morning at the Glenlaw House open day held by Dundee East MSP Shona Robison.
Allan Petrie, Chair of the Glenlaw Parents Group, said, “It is with great pleasure that we are able to buy these specialist bath seats for Glenlaw House to enhance our children’s respite stay.
“We couldn’t have bought these without the generosity from the general public. We thank them all for their support and look forward to their continued support in the future.”
Accepting the donation on behalf of Glenlaw House, senior charge nurse Christine Dempster said, “The new bath seats are greatly appreciated and will allow the children and young people accessing Glenlaw House to enjoy a sensory bath much more comfortably.”
Donation to Intensive Care Unit in memory of Lizzie
A cheque for £3,150 was presented to the Intensive Care Unit at Ninewells Hospital in memory of a past patient.
Money was raised by friends and family of Elizabeth (Lizzie) Kindness who sadly passed away in October 2018. Lizzie’s friends organised a celebration of her life, her workmates held a raffle and her employer, Multi Packaging Solutions in Arbroath matched the total raised.
Sheenagh Howard said, “It is with great pleasure that we are able to donate this cheque to the ICU. The care that Lizzie received was wonderful.”
Accepting the donation on behalf of the Intensive Care Unit, senior charge nurse Catherine Watson said, “This very generous donation will be used to fund the painting of two murals in the ICU side rooms so that patients have pleasant and relaxing scenes surrounding them.”
