A fundraising drive to expand Scotland’s only specialist neurological centre has passed the £2 million mark in just nine months.
Sue Ryder Dee View Court in Aberdeen launched a £3.9m capital appeal last June to refurbish its existing facilities in Kincorth and provide round-the-clock care and support for 55 patients.
And now, following donations of £500,000 from the Robertson Trust and £286,000 from the Morrisons Foundation, plus significant support from the local community, work to build the extension will begin as early as June and be done next spring.
Valerie Maxwell, the centre’s director said: “We are absolutely over the moon to reach the £2m milestone.
“It means so much to everyone at Dee View Court and we have been blown away by the support to date. We still have £1.8m to raise and we really need the people of Aberdeen’s support to help us get there.”
