Gaming donation to Tayside Children’s Hospital

Two PS4’s and games for the console have been donated to the Tayside Children’s Hospital from generous couple Mr and Mrs Leslie.

The kind couple recently married and instead of gifts, they asked their family and friends to make a donation to the hospital instead.

Play specialist Una Paton said, “Thank you very much for this generous donation. The children will love them!”

Brechin family donates to Stracathro

The Stewart family donated a significant sum of money to Ward 2, Stroke Unit & Day Hospital at Stracathro Hospital in memory of their husband and father.

Margaret Stewart and her family asked that the donation be used to purchase a piece of patient moving and handling equipment in memory of Margaret’s late husband Ed, who sadly passed away in the ward earlier this year.

Margaret said, “I am delighted to see that the money which we donated has been used to purchase a Sara Stedy. This piece of patient mobility equipment is exactly what we had in mind.”

Senior charge nurse Jim Henderson thanked the family on behalf of Ward 2 and the Angus Health & Social Care Partnership. Jim said, “This equipment will be beneficial in terms of assisting patients to transfer and mobilise, whilst at the same time helping to promote their independence.

“It will be most appreciated by both patients and staff here at the ward. We are grateful to the Stewarts for their very kind and generous donation.”

Walk raises money for children’s hospital

A sponsored 5k walk has raised £620 for the Tayside Children’s Hospital.

Zoe Mckenzie organised a pyjamas and teddies sponsored walk at Camperdown Park to raise money for the Tayside Children’s Hospital.

Zoe said, “My five year old son Konnor-Craig has been a regular patient at the hospital since he had a brain tumour removed in November 2017 in Glasgow. He has been admitted 14 times since his operation. He also attends the paediatric oncology clinic every fourth Monday.

“I wanted to do something nice for the hospital to show how grateful we are for everything they do. I organised a fun sponsored walk for my friends and work colleagues from Tesco on South Road. We raised an amazing £620.

“With the money raised, I purchased computer games and toys for the ward and a smart TV for the adolescent room.”

Accepting the donation play specialist Una Paton said, “A huge thank you to Zoe, her friends and colleagues. Their generous donation is very much appreciated.”
