Aberdeen Airport`s Managing Director, Andy Flower, visited the Grampian MS Therapy Centre in Dyce to present  a £1,000 donation instead of sending out Christmas cards to customers, friends and business associates.

“I am sure everyone knows that we really do wish them a very happy Christmas and prosperous New Year, but our management and staff would much rather see the money we would have spent sending out cards going to support a worthwhile cause in the local community,” he said.

The facility on the Kirkhill Industrial Estate is run by volunteers from Grampian Friends of ARMS (Action Research for Multiple Sclerosis) and is part of a network of 11 centres throughout Scotland that provide support and advice for MS sufferers and their families. Treatments available include Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO), physiotherapy and reflexology.

The centre manager is Donnie Fraser who started working there 18 months ago after retiring from the airport fire service. “Working at the centre is tremendously rewarding and the therapies provided can transform people`s lives and we don`t only help MS sufferers,” said Donnie.

“The HBO chamber, in particular, is hugely beneficial for a wide number of conditions and can even speed up the healing process for people with burns and broken bones. We are always looking for money to keep the centre going and to develop facilities and the airport`s donation has given us a tremendous boost as we look to start a new year,” he said.
