Tenant Donate to Roxburghe House
Date Posted: 15th of March 2013
The charitable efforts of a former Dundee tenants’ social committee were donated to Roxburghe House.
Residents at our Alexander Street Scheme agreed to donate the money from their social fund to benefit patients. This money had been raised by a previous tenants’ social committee through various fund-raising activities. Housing Officer, David Mitchell and Scheme Manager, Maureen McGuiness alongside our tenants, handed over a cheque for £1,277.58 to Anne Robb, Service Manager Tayside Specialist Palliative Services.
During Anne’s visit to the sheltered housing complex she outlined to residents the role of NHS Tayside’s specialist palliative care services highlighting the support that Roxburghe House offers to patients and their families. Anne said, "On behalf of Roxburghe House I would like to thank the tenants for this very kind and generous donation. The money will be used to benefit patients at Roxburghe House."
