We are delighted to announce that we have chosen Sue Ryder - Dee View Court as our official charity partner.
The new partnership will span two years and we hope to raise £10,000 for Dee View Court, the purpose-built neurological care centre based in Aberdeen. Dee View Court offers a safe and secure environment for its 22 residents who have a range of life limiting conditions, including motor neuron’s disease; multiple sclerosis; Huntington’s disease and acquired brain injury. Staff are trained and equipped to provide specialist care and support for residents which enables them to live life as fully and independently as possible.
Heather Stephen, Partner, said: “As a firm, we regularly support charitable causes within our local area. We are committed to fundraising for organisations where we feel we can make a real difference, this coupled with the fact that one of our Partners has a direct link with the charity, is why we chose Dee View Court..
“Our fundraising is well underway with a range of fundraising activities happening already, raising just under £1,000, which is fantastic. Other fundraising events in the pipeline include Quiz nights, Burns Suppers, Soup and Sandwich days and an evening of entertainment hosted by the firm’s band, Oldplay. Everyone is looking forward to working together to raise as much money as we can to help Sue Ryder to provide even more incredible care for even more people.”
Pamela McKenzie, Assistant Director for Scottish Services, added: “We are very excited about this partnership and cannot thank the firm enough for choosing us. The fantastic amount already raised will be going to good use straight away as we plan on putting it towards purchasing a new shower trolley for residents at Dee View Court. The new trolley will have padded lining, offer head support and will have hydraulic height adjustment for ease of use, which will enable residents to be showered and dried in comfort.
“Our vision for neurological care in Aberdeen is to be able to offer everyone access to the person-centred and specialised care that they need and deserve. With the fundraising support of Raeburn Christie Clark & Wallace and other generous donations, it looks like this vision could become a reality for the people who need it the most.”
