An Angus couple has donated £2500 to the chemotherapy day unit on ward 32 at Ninewells Hospital.

Pat and Mary Forrester from Forfar celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in June, marking the milestone with friends and family. Instead of gifts, they invited their friends and family to donate money to the chemotherapy day unit.

Mary said: “My husband, daughter and I have all had treatment here at ward 32 so we wanted to do something nice to thank everyone.

“Everyone has been so generous. Even though we said no gifts, we still received many gifts and cards in addition to the donations.”

Accepting the cheque, staff nurse Sandra King said, “We are very grateful for this kind donation from Pat and Mary and their friends and family.

“The money they have donated will go towards patient comfort.”
