Laing O’Rourke presented a cheque to NHS Dumfries and Galloway following a charity football match hosted by Queen of the South Football Club.


Laing O’Rourke the construction company building the new hospital, challenged NHS Dumfries and Galloway to win the Hospital Cup to raise funds for their nominated good cause, the children’s ward at DGRI, and NHS nominated Care of Older People.  The event brought local people together for a fun filled night with ticket and raffle sales, as well as generous donations from local businesses, clocking up a grand total of £4272.00.


Laing O’Rourke and Queen of the South representatives handed over the cheque to Julie White, Chief Operating Officer for NHS Dumfries and Galloway at Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary.


Julie White, Chief Operating Officer, NHS Dumfries and Galloway said:


“This donation is gratefully received on behalf of the children’s ward at DGRI, and Care of Older People, NHS.  We are delighted that Laing O’Rourke put great efforts into making the event a success for all involved, and for the generous support of Queen of the South Football Club.


“We would like to thank our own staff for volunteering to make up the football team to represent NHS Dumfries and Galloway in this special event.
