Donation to Brick by Brick appeal by Aberdeen group
A communications group has made a donation to help build a new wing for Scotland’s only specialist neurological centre.
Jasmine, which is based in East Tullos, raised £1,000 from staff quiz nights, individual donations and auctions, at the group’s Aberdeen and Peterhead centres, which was used to purchase a ‘brick’ to support the Dee View Court Appeal.
Jasmine, which employs 40 people, is an Aberdeen-based communication business engaged in marketing, advertising, PR, print, digital media, emergency media response and document management solutions.
The Brick by Brick campaign is raising money to create an additional 20 bedrooms at the charity’s Aberdeen-based neurological care centre.
Dee View Court in Kincorth provides 24-hair care for adults who have severe conditions, including multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s disease, severe stroke, acquired brain injury and Parkinson’s disease.
The centre has expert nurses, care assistants, physiotherapists and occupational therapists who are specialists in supporting the physical, communicative, cognitive, behavioural and psychological needs of people with neurological conditions.
Sue Ryder has so far raised more than £2.78million towards its £3.9million target, which will see Scotland’s only neurological facility double its capacity.
Danny Cowie, Jasmine managing director, said: “The whole team has got behind supporting the Brick by Brick campaign, and we all had great fun doing so. Dee View Court is an impressive facility to have in Aberdeen, and the work it does is unrivalled. The extension will provide much-needed care for those unfortunate to have conditions which will never improve, enabling them to have the best quality of life possible.”
Sue Ryder capital appeal manager, Emma Lieper Finlayson, commented: “We are extremely grateful to Jasmine, who were among the first to sign up to the Brick by Brick appeal. We are almost at £3million, and donations such as these help our target get closer and closer. There is an urgent need for care of this type in Scotland, and we have a waiting list of people who would like to live at Dee View Court.
