Roxburghe House has benefited to the tune of more than £48,000, thanks to a fundraising effort led by a patient’s granddaughter and a donation from Apache North Sea, a subsidiary of Apache Corporation.

Shelby Elrick’s grandfather David Adams, was admitted to Roxburghe House in September 2021 while the unit was trialling a cuddle bed.

These are beds which can be extended widthways and lengthways to allow a relative to cuddle up to their loved one and Friends of Roxburghe House had funded the purchase of one bed.

Following David’s death, Shelby, along with family, decided to fundraise for a second bed to enable more patients and their families to benefit from the comfort that these beds provide.
