At a recent choir rehearsal we were delighted to be able to present Steve Conway, Chief Executive of Erskine, in the company of Lesley van Dyk from our sponsors, Co-op Funeralcare, with a cheque for £10,000. This was the money raised from our ‘ERSKINE 100th. Birthday Concert’ at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall earlier this year. Since the first patient was admitted in October 1916, Erskine has cared for over 85,000 veterans or their spouses and today provides nursing, dementia and respite care to over 1000 veterans or their spouses each year. Steve Conway expressed his gratitude to the choir for performing the 100th. Birthday Concert and also to Co-op Funeralcare for their sponsorship of the event. The money raised will go to ensure that Erskine continues to provide the highest standards of care they believe our veterans deserve.
