There’s something BIG happening in Aberdeen, and you can be a part of it!

Sue Ryder Dee View Court is set to launch a £3.9 million Capital Appeal to extend their specialist neurological care home in Kincorth, Aberdeen.

This big build will create more houses, rooms and specialist facilities for people living with neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Motor Neurone Disease, Huntington’s Disease and acquired brain injuries.

To kick-start the Capital Appeal we are looking to recruit 10 incredible team members to manage a summer project, culminating in a show stopping fundraising event in Aberdeen, in September. The aim is to generate £5,000 through the creation of a sensationally slick public event.

The team will be responsible for managing the event from start to finish - from the event concept, marketing, PR and ticket sales to gaining corporate support, room decoration and logistics, with ongoing advice and support from the Capital Appeal team at Sue Ryder Dee View Court.
