Following a recent diagnosis of prostate cancer, Neil Thomson, suported by friends from St Andrew's Curch in Arbroath, held a sponsored Tartan Sunday to raise funds for Maggie's Centre, Dundee and the Ninewells Cancer Camapign. Neil and friends recently presented Lady Fiona Fraser with a cheque for £900, and are pictured highlighting a very impressive display of tartan in Arbroath.
Professor Russell Petty was delighted to have the opportunity to introduce his clinical and research interests in a recent presentation at the University of Dundee Discovery Day lecture series - an annual showcase of the University's newest Professors, award winning teachers and communicators. Professor Petty's talk, entitled "Developing new medicines for cancer - the importance of being precise" allowed him to describe new more personalised approaches for the treatment of oesophageal cancer.
At their recent Christmas Party, the Ladies Section of the Michelin Athletic Club handed over a cheque for £1,200 to Mr Aubrey Wood, Vice-Chairman of the Ninewells Cancer Campaign. The Ladies accumulated the money by fundraising throughout the year: - having a Cake and Candy Sale, a Bring and Buy evening, a Book Stall, a Charity Bingo Flyers and a Tombola Stall at their annual BBQ in the grounds of the Michelin Athletic Club. Many thanks for your support!
