North-east man Paul Crockett celebrated his 40th birthday recently and instead of presents his family and friends donated cash to the Buchan Renal Unit, based at Peterhead Community Hospital.

Paul was overwhelmed with their generosity and a fantastic total of £1,385 was handed over to the unit. He has expressed thanks to Sandhaven village hall, the Band, Jokers Highway and all his family and friends who came and helped him celebrate and gave so generously.

Commenting on the donation, senior charge nurse at the unit, Linda Willows, said: “ The continuing generosity of the local community is tremendous and we would like to thank Paul and his family and friends for this fantastic donation.”
