Shona Burke, Aberdeen
“At the end of last year our group of hill walkers received the very sad news of the loss of three very dear friends within weeks of one another. They all shared the fact that they had been fighting cancer and passed away at Roxburghe House.

In memory of our friends I decided to hold a ‘chocolate party’ Unfortunately it turned out to be a night of the worst snow you can imagine but eleven hardy ladies struggled through treacherous roads to be there. The chocolate from Moray even managed to reach us aided by a brave representative. We had a lovely night and must have put on half a stone sampling all the chocolate and eating lovely fruit skewers and marshmallows from the chocolate fountain! We raised £125 in memory of Mary Christian, Irene Dewar and Stan Tennant which I have donated to the Friends of Roxburghe House.”
