Joan Wood celebrated her 80th birthday with family and friends at a party at Brechin Bowling Club. Joan had asked for donations rather than presents and would like to thank everyone who helped raise £600. The money was handed over to Stracathro Stroke Unit’s patients’ comfort fund and will go towards the purchase of supportive chairs. Joan, who worked at Stracathro Hospital for 29 years as a nursing auxiliary and then as a volunteer after she retired, said she “wanted to contribute something back to her second home”.
