Bingo night cash goes to great causes
Contribute to support quality local journalism
A BINGO night organised by staff at Walkers Shortbread has raised £1485 for two local organisations which do amazing work.
The evening in Aberlour's Fleming Hall last month was held partly in memory of Julie McConnachie who was from Rothes and worked at Walkers.
Half the money has now been donated to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary whose renal unit treated Julie.
Catherine Rennie, a senior clinical nurse, wrote a letter of thanks on behalf of all the medical staff on ward 108.
She said: "Thank you so much for your generous donation of £750 from your bingo night.
"The money will be used to purchase camp beds to allow relatives to spend the night on the ward so that they can be beside their family.
"Julie will always be remembered by all or staff. It was a pleasure to have known and cared for her."
The other half of the money has been passed on to CLAN Cancer Support who have helped other people connected to Walkers.
