Leading Aberdeen and North-east legal firm Raeburn Christie Clark & Wallace are delighted to present a cheque for £2,500 to Sue Ryder to support the development of a rehabilitation kitchen at Dee View Court in Aberdeen.
Sue Ryder at Dee View Court is the official charity partner of the local firm of solicitors and this is the first of its fundraising donations to be presented to the Aberdeen facility. Sue Ryder 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.
Pamela Mackenzie, Assistant Director Health and Social Care Scotland at Sue Ryder explains: “We are currently putting a new rehabilitation kitchen into Sue Ryder Dee View Court and are very grateful to the Partners and Staff at Raeburn Christie Clark & Wallace for this welcome contribution to our capital appeal. This new facility will make a huge difference to the residents supporting them to be more independent by providing them with new equipment so they can complete everyday tasks unaided”.
Partners and Staff are currently embarking on a series of fundraising initiatives to raise much-needed funds for the facility in Aberdeen. A team took part in the recent Baker Hughes 10k raising almost £1000 and earlier this year the firm were crowned Northsound Workplace of the Year 2016 adding another £1000 to its fundraising efforts.
Heather Stephen, Partner and Head of the firm’s charity committee said “We are still busy fundraising for the charity and have a number of fun activities planned over the next few months but we are delighted to help support the building of this new kitchen for residents at Sue Ryder Dee View Court in the interim”.
