Scottish singer and songwriter, Annie Lennox sang an excerpt of the Eurythmics song, 'There Must Be An Angel', to thank the Sue Ryder Nurses and support staff at the Sue Ryder Neurological Care Centre Dee View Court, in Aberdeen.
The coronavirus pandemic, including the more recent second lockdown in Aberdeen and local flooding has posed significant challenges to the Sue Ryder staff who provide expert care to people with neurological conditions at Sue Ryder Neurological Care Centre Dee View Court.
Speaking before her performance, Annie Lennox, said:
“Here is a small message of huge appreciation to all the nurses and care staff at Sue Ryder Dee View Court in my hometown of Aberdeen. I am so impressed with everything that you are doing right now, so I thought that I could perhaps sing a little song for you to show my thanks.”
Val Maxwell, Centre Director of Sue Ryder Neurological Care Centre Dee View Court, said:
“Myself and the staff are blown away by Annie’s kind words and her dedication of such a well-known, beautiful song to the team here who have been nothing short of amazing over the last few months. We all stood there with open mouths when we watched it – it was such a wonderful surprise.
“I am incredibly grateful to every member of the team here at Sue Ryder Dee View Court, who have put their own concerns and worries about Coronavirus aside in order to continue to provide the expert and compassionate care that we are all so proud to deliver.
“They have all really pulled together and it is wonderful for them to see their passion being noticed and appreciated by Annie Lennox!”
