Rosalind's good deed

A WOMAN from Dumfries has presented a cheque for £1266 to staff in the oncology department at DGRI following a fundraising garden party at her home.

Rosalind Watt organised the charity event after recovering from cancer treatment herself, during which time she attended the Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Centre and Chemotherapy clinic within the department.

The monies raised will contribute towards a complementary therapies initiative for local patients currently undergoing or having recently completed cancer treatment.

Centre manager Claire Drummond said: “We cannot thank Rosalind enough for her efforts in arranging and hosting a garden party to raise these funds to help other patients attending the department. We were delighted to meet with Rosalind and talk about how we could use the funds in such a positive way contributing to the provision of Reiki now being offered to patients.”
