Donation 75: Russia, October

Full write up to follow, in the meantime…

The Russia donation was led by Steering Group member Graeme Baxter and here’s his words the day:

An absolute privilege to lead the Sunshine Appeal donation this morning at the Lighhouse Childrens Hospice in Moscow. The charity care for children with terminal and incurable diseases, offering them the assistance required to live thie lives to the full in limited time they have. It really is an amazing facility with so much thought gone in to every aspect from design to layout to support functions on site.

Joined by a small group of Scotland fans, and the (Scottish) UK consul in Russia, we were given a tour around the new facility due to be fully opened in Spring 2020, spoke with staff, and met several of the children and family being supported by the organisation.
The £5,000 we donated will go to fund new medical equipment and pay for the various support services offered to the children.
