Carnegie Knox announce Sue Ryder as their chosen charity of the year for 2018

Carnegie Knox is delighted to announce that they have chosen Sue Ryder as their 2018 Charity of the Year.

The Charity, home to Scotland’s only purpose-built specialist neurological care centre, provides person-centered hospice and care for those facing a frightening, life-changing diagnosis.

Not only do they treat more conditions than any other UK charity in their hospices, neurological care centres and out in the community; but they also influence others to improve the lives of people living with such illnesses.

Carnegie Knox Practice Manager Lorraine Simpson and our Business Development Manager, Lesley Taylor said: “We are pleased to be able to provide support to the Sue Ryder Charity and the excellent work they do. It’s really important to us as a firm that we are able to give back to the local community and after a recent visit to the current Dee View Court facility in Aberdeen, we were so impressed by the staff there and what they are trying to achieve, that we collectively decided to dedicate all monies raised throughout the year to the development of the new-build wing and extension.”

With demand for a place at the Dee View Court facility continuing to grow, the Charity is currently campaigning to raise £3.9 million to build new specially adapted rooms and apartments to accommodate the increasing need for their specialist services across the country.

Valerie Maxwell, Director for the Sue Ryder Dee View Court Centre, said: “Dee View Court has played a key role in the delivery of expert and compassionate long-term care for people living with complex care and support needs for over 13 years, receiving referrals from across Scotland.”

“We currently provide facilities for up to 24 residents at any one time. Following the expansion we will be able to offer room for up to 43 people in total – nearly double,” she added.

News of upcoming fundraising activities from Carnegie Knox will be announced in due course but for more information about the Charity and how to donate please visit: www.sueryder.org/DeeViewAppeal
