Sensational show raises funds for Tayside Children’s Hospital
Dundee dance studio Dance Sensation put on a show at Dundee’s Whitehall Theatre and raised £1,200 for Ward 29 at Ninewells Hospital.
Every year the studio fundraises for charities and good causes and this year chose the children’s ward at Ninewells. One of the young dancers who performs with Dance Sensation has been attending the ward and owner of Dance Sensation Gillian Bryceland wanted to thank the staff for looking after her.
She presented the cheque to senior charge nurse Catherine Borland who thanked her for her generous donation.
The money will be used to buy games and activities for the play room and other items for use in the ward.
Donation to Strathmore Diabetes Centre in memory of Alan Reilly.
A total of £600 was donated to the Strathmore Diabetes Centre at Ninewells Hospital in memory of Alan Reilly.
John and Joan Reilly collected £600 at the funeral of their son Alan, a former patient of the Strathmore Diabetes Centre.
Mr and Mrs Reilly, along with their daughter Gillian attended to hand over the donation to Dr Iqbal Malik, Honorary consultant/clinical senior lecturer and Mary Robertson, diabetes specialist nurse.
Accepting the donation, Dr Iqbal Malik said, “I would like to thank Alan’s family and friends for this generous donation. The money will be well used and will go towards our diabetes service fund.”
