Last weekend, two special events took place in Aberdeen – home of our Dee View Court neurological care centre.
On Saturday 26th August, locals came together to Celebrate Aberdeen. They took part in a parade down Aberdeen's main street, Union Street, celebrating third sector organisations and raising awareness of all the wonderful work that goes on in the city.
Our Sue Ryder Dee View Court team proudly marched among them (pictured above), flying the flag for all the residents and the incredible neurological care team.
Great Aberdeen Run
As Sunday dawned, we had 40 runners taking on the inaugural Great Aberdeen Run, running the 10K and half-marathon in aid of our Dee View Court Capital Appeal, which aims to raise £3.9m to extend the care centre, and build more specially adapted rooms and houses.
Supporters raised in the region of £10,000 for the appeal! They included a corporate team from David Lloyd (pictured in a group at the bottom), and siblings Lesley and Donnie (second from last image), who ran the 10K in support of their mum, Kathleen, who is a resident of Dee View Court.
What is the Dee View Capital Appeal?
We plan on giving more people in Scotland the chance to get the most from life. To make this happen, we want to double the number of people that live at our Dee View Court care centre already.
