Our staff had a very special visit from former patient Flynn Scott. He presented them with a cheque for £5,000.

Many of you will have read about Flynn's accident in the press, and the huge fundraiser that was launched in his name. An incredible £15,000 was raised, which is being split between ICU and neurosurgery and neuro rehab. Thank you so much Flynn, and your army of supporters. We wish you all the best with your recovery 💛

David didn't know if he'd be able to walk again after a seven-hour operation for a spinal tumour in 2018.

But not only is he well and truly back on his feet, he's also whizzing around on two wheels! In July, he's taking on the Etape Du Tour 2022 - a 166km cycle across the mountains, starting at Briancon to Alpe D'Heuz. 🚴

It is with regret that we must announce Friends of the Neuro Ward has withdrawn plans to build a therapy garden at Woodend Hospital, Aberdeen.

Over the last three years, we have invested both time and your hard-earned donations into making the garden a reality.

However, due to factors outwith our control it has become clear it would be irresponsible for the charity to continue with the project.

We have contacted the donors who specifically raised money for the garden to make them aware of this difficult decision, as well as OSCR and NHS Grampian.

We're deeply disappointed, but hope you understand and will continue to support us in the future.

While we've been enjoying the Olympics from the comfort of our couch, fundraiser Shane Thompson has been pounding the streets in preparation for the Berlin Marathon!

Shane caught the running bug after recovering from subdural empyema (an abscess on the brain caused by a sinus infection). In 2014, he spent time on W205 after undergoing a craniotomy and wants to raise money to help other neuro patients.

It's an incredible effort and we wish him all the best. Can't wait to see the pictures of him cross that finish line - especially since the event was postponed last year due to Covid.

Jake Summers was rushed to hospital with a serious head injury following a crash last year.

Now he and his mum, Laura, have been visiting those who saved his life - including the team at W205 and the rehab unit at Woodend.
Staff were delighted to welcome him back, and he handed over a cheque for £560 to both. Other units at ARI - including resus, surgical high dependency and intensive care have also received a boost, along with those who got him there, Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) and the Scottish Ambulance Service.

The family raised the funds by selling friendship badges on their Forever Friends page, selling lucky squares and even embarking on a 10,000 steps a day challenge last month.
Thank you so much for your efforts, and we hope you keep surprising your doctors Jake!

We're constantly inspired by our supporters, and Colleen's Superfans are no exception.

This incredible bunch came together in honour of nurse Colleen Mair, who suffered several brain haemorrhages in 2018/19 and spent time on W205 and the rehab unit at Woodend.

They all signed up for Run Garioch (Dandara 10K) last year, but it was cancelled due to Covid. It went virtual in May this year however, and they smashed it!

Even better, Colleen herself managed to complete 10K walk with her dad too. As her best friend Alyson - another nurse - said, "Maybe it was a blessing the run was delayed and she could take part".

Scott Mair, Greig Mair, Leanne Smith, Alyson Thomson, Colin Greig, Kelly Cheyne, Mark Lamont, Colleen Black, Lynsey Dalgarno, Kacey Rennie, James Finn, Debbie Castles, Karen Soppitt you are all amazing... Thank you for raising £3,891.25 for us!

Kiltwalk regular Sally Adam urges people to sign up to make a big difference, one step at a time

When Sally Adam set off for the Aberdeen Kiltwalk in 2017, she had never heard of Friends of the Neuro Ward.

But while she was walking to Potarch, her father Doug had been raced to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary where he was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a rare condition that affects the nerves and can, in some cases, result in paralysis.

After his initial treatment at the neuro ward at ARI, Doug was transferred to the rehab unit at Woodend Hospital where the dedicated team got him moving and helped him learn to walk again.

Determined to thank the staff, Sally signed up for the Edinburgh Kiltwalk the following year.

Shortly afterwards, she found out about Friends of the Neuro Ward’s work to improve facilities for patients at Woodend and ARI and decided to pull on her walking boots again – this time, signing up for four Kiltwalks with her partner Mike Gibbon.

Together they completed the Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow routes in the summer of 2019 and raised an incredible £3,000.

Now the couple is preparing to take part in the first ever virtual Kiltwalk, which runs from April 23-25.

Walkers can set their own route, and distance, this year and all the money they raise will be topped up by up to 50% by the Hunter Foundation, enabling charities of all sizes to make a big difference.

Sally, who runs her own cafe in Portlethen, told anyone thinking about taking part to sign up and promised it would give them a “great sense of accomplishment”.

“We really like the challenge of the Kiltwalk, and the fact that whatever we raise is topped up by 50% is a big incentive,” she said.

“At a usual Kiltwalk there’s a brilliant atmosphere, everyone is so friendly. We loved the Glasgow one especially as people were lining the streets to cheer us on.

“The sense of accomplishment at the end is good, and the fact you can pick any charity that’s close to your heart makes it even better.”

The couple plan to walk from their home in Echt to Sally’s Cafe and have already increased their regular walks in preparation.

Sally however, is no stranger to big walks – having conquered both Mount Kilimanjaro and Ben Nevis for charity.

“I started big and have worked my way back down,” she laughed. “But we really like the Kiltwalks and supporting a smaller charity.”

To sign up for the Kiltwalk on our behalf, visit https://www.thekiltwalk.co.uk and search for Friends of the Neuro Ward.

Read More

Like so many other charities, our fundraising took an real hit in 2020 due to the pandemic. We've been so lucky that our supporters have stuck by us, and can't thank them enough. This has allowed us to buy various pieces of equipment for the ward - from music speakers and new games and puzzles (to while away the time when no visitors have been allowed) to a special mattress and recliner chairs.

As things begin to ease over the coming few months, we're looking forward to getting back out there - alongside our mascot Buddy, of course! Do you fancy getting involved?

The Kiltwalk is going virtual this year, and we'd be thrilled to see you pounding the streets on our behalf. It runs over the weekend of April 23-25 and you can walk/skip/hop/boogie how far you want, where you want. Every penny raised will be topped up by 50% thanks to Sir Tom Hunter. We also have places at Ride the North and would love you to be on the first ever FOTNW team! Given the uncertainty of things just now, organiser Neil has come up with a couple of contingency plans but as things stand, there are three routes to choose from. These are 100km, 140km and 180km through some of the best north-east scenery, setting off from Huntly on July 24.

We're covering the registration fee, and simply asking our riders to raise a minimum of £150. We'll supply you with a T-shirt and water bottle, and all the support we can.

To find out about more about either event - or to let us know about your own fundraising idea - please email info@fotnw.org or send us a message on Facebook.

Can you help us bring a smile to the neuro patients spending Christmas in hospital this year?

Every year, we delivers stockings to those on Wards 204 and 205 at ARI and the rehab unit at Woodend Hospital.

We're always blown away by the donations we receive.

This year, we've created an online wish list for Covid reasons, and hope you'll help us bring a smile to patients once again!

Any donation from our list will be greatly appreciated. This year, our volunteers won't be able to deliver the goodies personally on Christmas Eve - but the fabulous staff on the ward are looking forward to doing the honours on our behalf!

Remember, if you sign up to Amazon Smile you can pick us to benefit - meaning we'll also get a cash donation on top of your stocking goodies.

We're still working on our plans to create a therapy garden at the rehab unit at Woodend Hospital in Aberdeen.

All through lockdown, our co-chairs Caroline and Shona kept saying they wished the garden was in place so that patients could get out of the ward at a time when visitors were restricted.

Now we're even more determined to raise the final £50,000 - but we need your help!

Garden Now and Soon

The project

With the support of renowned garden designer James Alexander-Sinclair, we have a wonderful plan to transform the tired, existing garden at Woodend Hospital into a space of tranquility and refuge for patients.

The space, inspired by Horatio's Gardens for NHS patients with spinal injuries in Glasgow, will be accessible to all patients and and their families, and has been designed to meet their needs.

It'll be a colourful, relaxing space with intertwining paths wide enough for bed-bound patients and those in wheelchairs to move around.

We'll also have a garden therapist available

Our fantastic supporters have already raised £100,000 - if you can help with this last push of fundraising, we could get digging.

Why do we want to build a garden?

It is universally recognised that gardens and gardening have a beneficial effect on both mental and physical well-being.

Patients from ARI's neuro wards 204 and 205 are often transferred to Woodend to receive further care at the rehabilitation ward at Woodend.

The ward serves Grampian, the Highlands and islands, and with these patients being so far from home, making the hospital environment even more important.

The healing process can be a long one, taking many months, and we believe having access to a specially adapted garden would make such a difference to patients.

How can you get involved?

Like most charities, our fundraising has been badly hit by coronavirus.

We have been very lucky to have some very creative fundraisers on our side, and would like to thank those who have made face masks, hosted a bake sale and run for us over the last few months.

But we need your help too! We'd love to hear your fundraising idea, and will support your efforts as much as we can.

If you decide to take part in an event for us, and would like the money to go specifically to the garden project, please let us know when you sign up.

Here we are presenting a Marsden Patient Transfer Scales to the staff on ward 205. The scales will be a huge asset to the ward, enabling immobile patients to be weighed on the bed without having to be transferred onto a chair or such like and ensuring the correct dose of medication is given.

How is the Patient Transfer Scale used?

The Patient Transfer Scale, or PTS, can be used in the same way as a transfer board. Simply place the PTS across the trolley and bed (or between two beds), and move your patient across in line with your manual handling/patient transfer policies. You’ll just need to stop for 3-4 seconds as they pass over the PTS in order for the weight reading to register

If your child would like to enter, please get in touch by email info@fotnw.org to request a colouring in sheet.
