Carnegie Knox Raise £1000 for the Dee View Appeal

Carnegie Knox is delighted to have raised £1000 for their chosen charity, Sue Ryder, towards their brick by brick campaign. The money is being used by the charity to support their Dee View Appeal that will create a further 20 bedrooms at their Aberdeen-based neurological care centre.

Carnegie Knox Business Development Manager, Lesley Taylor, had the opportunity to visit Dee View Court in person, which led her to believe that Carnegie Knox should support the charity. Speaking about her initial visit, Lesley commented: “When I arrived at Dee View Court, the first thing that struck me was the friendliness of the staff. They really go that extra mile for their residents. I had a tour of the premises and could see what they were trying to achieve. This led me to believe that the Carnegie Knox team could play a small part in raising funds to increase the size of this facility, allowing more people to access the speciality care they desperately need.”

In order to raise the £1000, the team arranged raffles, ‘guess the sweet in the jar’ and a bingo night, working hard to ensure that the events were a success. It was a fantastic opportunity for Carnegie Knox staff to raise money for Sue Ryder, while also having great fun! Lesley urged others to get involved, saying: “There’s still some way to go for the Dee View Appeal to hit its target, so I would encourage anyone to get involved with organising fun activities that will also raise funds for this vital charity.’

Sue Ryder is a charity that supports people through the most difficult times of their lives, giving compassionate, expert care to those who most need it. Home to Scotland’s only purpose-built specialist neurological care centre, the charity provides person-centred hospice care for those facing a frightening, life-changing diagnosis. Sue Ryder treats more conditions than any other UK charity in their hospices, neurological care centres and in the community while also encouraging others to improve the lives of people living with such illnesses.
