The team constructing the new £7 million Older Patients’ Unit at St Mary’s Hospital, Kettering, for the Northamptonshire Healthcare Trust has handed over a cheque for £1,843 to the Alzheimer’s Society.

The scheme is for a 24-bed older persons’ unit and is being carried out by Balfour Beatty as part of the ProCure 21+ national NHS framework.

The project team raised the funds through a charity Golf Day, which was held in conjunction with the Trust and its Supply Chain partners.

Neil Austin, from the Northamptonshire Healthcare Trust, said: “Thank you to Mark Walsh and the Balfour Beatty team who organised this charity event with all proceeds supporting the great work of the Alzheimer’s Society in our area.”

Danielle Hindle, community fundraiser at the Alzheimer’s Society, added; “I am delighted to be here today to accept this cheque on behalf of the Alzheimer’s Society. I would like to thank Balfour Beatty for organising the event which will help us continue our work with the people of Northamptonshire.”

Mark Walsh, project manager at Balfour Beatty, said: “We really enjoyed organising this event which brought together Northamptonshire Healthcare Trust and our supply chain to raise much needed funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.

“It is my pleasure to represent all those who were involved in the fundraising which has enabled us to give something back to the community in which we are operating.”
