Caring for ex-Service men and women in Scotland

from Fundraising Manager Elizabeth Millar to Margaret Gilchrist, 26th February 2003

On behalf of the Chief Executive, Colonel Martin Gibson OBE, the residents and staff at Erskine Hospital, I write to thank you very much indeed for your generous donation of £150.00. I have much pleasure in enclosing our official receipt.

So much has been achieved at Erskine Hospital in recent years and it is most satisfying to know that the residents are benefiting from the much improved surroundings and facilities. Last year we looked after over 700 residents in our Homes in Glasgow and Edinburgh and it is clear that the demand for Erskine Care will continue for many years to come.

In the last 12 months Erskine has worked to achieve the final element of the 2000 strategy to take Erskine Care Scotland–wide by setting up a Bursary Scheme with an existing health care provider. This Scheme gives ex-Service personnel in other parts of the country access to quality care closer to their homes, families and friends and is currently available in Aberdeen, Inverness, Dundee, Perth and Dumfries.

The changes in Erskine's facilities and services throughout Scotland would not have taken place without the wonderful support we receive from people like yourself who are aware of the care we provide and we are most grateful for your contribution.

If you are a taxpayer, then by completing the enclosed Declaration Certificate, Erskine will be able to recover an extra 29 pence for every £1 you have given at no extra cost to you. Indeed, if you are ahigher rate taxpayer, you can claim additional relief in your annual tax return. I enclose a self-addressed envelope for your use. If you require any further information on the new provisions please let us know.

Please convey our thanks to `The Residents of Week 5' at Forest Hills for supporting you in your efforts for Erskine. This support is greatly valued by everyone in our Erskine Care Homes. Thank you again for your most important donation.
