Family donate to Children’s Hospital

A local Careston woman has visited Ninewells Hospital to donate a cheque for £2,800

Lynn Kirkwood organised a charity ball in aid of Tayside Children’s Hospital and the Archie Foundation in Aberdeen with four work colleagues, Colin Bannerman, Martin Reynolds, Kelsey Forsyth and Donal Leddy, from Wood Group PSN.

It was done by Lynn as a way of thanking the children’s hospital for the care her daughter Emily had received after she was diagnosed with development dysplasia of the hip.

Lynn and Emily handed a cheque over for £2,800 and a selection of toys to Shona Lee, Paediatric Orthopaedic Liaison Nurse from the children’s hospital. Shona said: “I would like to thank Lynn and her colleagues for this very generous donation.”
