Generous donation to ICU
Employees from Wood Group donated £2851.04 to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Ninewells.
The group of staff in Aberdeen and Hull recently completed a friendly running challenge. While encouraging each other to be more active, they took this opportunity to raise money for the ICU.
Ben Loffelman from Wood Group said, “A colleague of ours was recently treated in ICU at Ninewells following a serious accident. So when our running challenge came up, we thought it would be a great idea to raise money for the unit to show our appreciation for the amazing work done by the team. Wood Group kindly matched the money we raised, giving us an amazing amount to donate.”
Accepting the donation, consultant in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine Shaun McLeod said, “Many thanks for this very generous donation to ICU. It is always rewarding to see former patients return to visit the unit. The donation will go into our patient comfort fund which helps improve the unit for patients and their relatives.”
