A man is raising money for Ninewells Hospital’s Ward 23B.
Paul Duncan, 32, from Stobswell, plans to spend the next few months fundraising to thank them for saving his mother’s life. Lorraine Duncan was in hospital after a disc in her back slipped leaving her with a compressed spinal cord and needing neurosurgery.
The grateful fundraiser has organised a charity raffle, with a grand prize of a Samsung TV.
Paul told the Tele: “This is just the start of a long campaign. I plan to work with local businesses and go outside the usual kind of fundraising.
