Staff from the Highland Urology Centre at Raigmore Hospital have been able to say thank you in person to a patient who raised more than £2750 for the department.

Donald Graham, from Nairn, wanted to give something back to the department after they supported him following his prostate cancer diagnosis.

He organised a sleep out at Nairn County's Station Park ground and initially hoped to raise £1000 which would be split between the centre and Prostate Scotland.

Donations went well beyond his expectations with over £5500 raised in total.

Mr Graham said: “I knew that when the first anniversary of my prostatectomy came up I had to do something positive to mark that date. The sleep out was something I thought was a good thing to do and I was rewarded with such generosity from so many people. Thank you to Nairn County for their support in assisting me."

Brian Corr, urology clinical nurse specialist with NHS Highland, said: "This is a tremendous donation for the department, and we are very grateful to Donald for his efforts. It was great to be able to thank him in person and have a quick catch up. We will ensure the donation is put to good use in the centre."
