POIGNANT CHARITY FUNDRAISER BOOST FOR ROXBURGHE HOUSE

08 April 2015

The generous Tayside business community and members of the public have raised an incredible £12,000-plus for Roxburghe House including a £1000 donation from the TSPC.

The money was generated by a sponsored walk in memory of well-known local lawyers Eileen Matthew, a former director of the Tayside Solicitors Property Centre, and her close friend Jennifer Adams, who sadly passed away within four years of each other.

Both solicitors were remembered by family and friends taking part in the June sponsored walk supported by donations from various quarters.

The fundraiser generated a total of £12,024.76 and a cheque has been handed over to Roxburghe House, the hospice for the terminally ill in Dundee where both Eileen and Jennifer spent their last days and benefited greatly from the support provided by caring staff.

The sponsored walk was organised by Eileens husband Alan, a partner at TSPC member firm Miller Hendry, along with daughters, Katherine and Eleanor. The walk started at Auchallater near the Glenshee Ski Centre and progressed along Jocks Road for over 19 kilometres through some spectacular Scottish scenery, finishing at Glen Doll where there was a BBQ for the walkers and sponsors.

Alan said: “I am simply overwhelmed by the generosity and support from friends, colleagues and the local legal community in Tayside. This is a sizable amount of money and Roxburghe House will be putting it to very good use, supporting and caring for families and individuals at very difficult times in their lives.

“Both Eileen and Jennifer would have been delighted with the response and I am extremely grateful.”

The generosity of the Tayside public is understandable. Eileen was one of the areas “weel-kent” faces and, as a conveyancing solicitor based in Dundee, over her career was responsible for helping thousands of local people purchase their family homes.

Mr Hugh McKay Chairman of the TSPC and Non-executive member of Tayside NHS Board, Munwar Hussain attended the cheque handover with Mr Hussain commenting: “This is an exceptionally generous donation that will go a long way in helping us to provide first class compassionate care and a comfortable environment for patients.”

Alan added: “Eileen loved people. She was forever optimistic and upbeat and, while purchasing a home can be stressful for some, Eileen always made it fun and enjoyable for people and they remember her for it.

“Im so grateful that her and Jennifers legacy is to help others when they need it most its exactly as they would have wanted it.”
