The Rotary Club of Aberdeen have kindly donated £1,000 towards our capital appeal to extend the Aberdeen-based neurological care centre, Sue Ryder Dee View Court.

The club's representatives Mike Hedges, John Conroy and Mike Craig visited Dee View Court on Thursday 21st June to present their gift to Capital Appeal Manager Emma Leiper Finlayson.

The gift was raised via the Rotary Club's annual art show at the Marcliffe Hotel and Spa in Pitfodels.


True colours

The show featured renowned watercolour artist Jonathan Wheeler who created a piece live in front of the audience in just two hours.

The painting was of a scenic view of the Scolty Hill in the beautiful Royal Deeside. The painting was auctioned off at the end of the evening.

Sue Ryder Dee View Court was one of three charities benefiting from the proceeds of the event.


Another brick closer...

The Rotary's gift of £1,000 will go towards the purchase of a brick as part of the Dee View Court Capital Appeal's Brick by Brick initiative.

This fundraising initiative encourages supporters to donate or pledge to raise £1,000 towards a brick for the new extension.

The painting, aptly named 'A Dee View', has been kindly donated by the buyer to Sue Ryder, and it will take pride of place in the new extension of Dee View Court when it is complete next year.
