Generous gift for Ward 8

Mrs Angela Hadden, a former patient of Ward 8 at Ninewells, decided to raise funds to show her appreciation for the care and treatment she received. Her 65th birthday party held at the Montrose Caledonia Golf Club provided the perfect fund raising opportunity.

Rather than receive gifts, Angela invited her family, friends and work colleagues to donate to Ward 8, raising a generous £500.

Mrs Hadden said: “I spent four weeks in Ward 8 earlier this year and received excellent treatment and the staff were so caring. I really just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who cared for me while I was in hospital.”

Senior charge nurse Rebecca Ranford said, “On behalf of everyone in Ward 8 I would like to thank Mrs Hadden for this donation which will be used for patient comforts. It was very kind of her to use her special birthday celebrations to raise funds.”
