Another incredible fundraising effort from Team Rautomead, who have worked so hard at fundraising for PATCH over the years.
Marc Moir, husband of Nicky Moir at Rautomead Limited in Dundee, ran the Great North run on Sunday 9th September on behalf of PATCH and Macmillan. £750 was donated to PATCH – a tremendous achievement.
Pamela Levack, Medical Director of PATCH, commented:
The contribution to palliative care made by charities is huge. The most recent project that this money will go to is a mandatory communications course in Tayside for final year Dundee Medical students.
Everyone starting as a doctor should have the basic skill of knowing how to speak [and listen to] patients who are very ill, and their families.
Once more a big thank you to Rautomead who have so given so generously towards the cause of palliative care for patients in hospital over many years. Their imagination for fund raising has no bound.
After an incredible day at the RBS Dundee Kiltwalk, Rautomead walkers raised £5,432 for PATCH.
On 19th August 2017, four intrepid walkers from Rautomead Ltd in Dundee, took part in the walk from St Andrews to Carnoustie. Over 1500 people in total took part over 3 different distance walks.
They raised the fantastic sum of £3,880 which, when added to the 40% top up from the Hunter Foundation, raised a total of £5,432.

It was a wonderful achievement and yet another contribution from Rautomead who have been generous supporters of PATCH, and the Ninewells Acute Palliative Care Unit in its early days, which was the inspiration for the charity.
Thank you heroes and heroines – note the kilts!
Rautomead's outstanding fundraising efforts have resulted in a £1,845 donation to PATCH. This follows last year's generous donation of £1200.
Rautomead Limited, based in Dundee, has once again shown its continued and unstinting support for PATCH with a wonderful donation of £1,845 which was presented to the charity’s Trudy McLeay and Mary Mackenzie last week. The funds were raised from an in house ‘tuck shop’ with baking and goodies produced and sold by staff, as well as sales of PATCH Christmas cards.
Last year Rautomead raised £1200 from the tuck shop and this year they excelled themselves beating a target of £1500, and we are delighted! One of the very first supporters of PATCH, through its initial and generous support of the Ninewells Acute Palliative Care Unit in Dundee, Rautomead continues to show its fabulous support for the work of the charity.
On behalf of PATCH we would like to once again thank Rautomead for everything they have done with such generous spirit.
