A charity fundraiser held in the Taxi Club in February in memory of well-known Dundee entertainer Jimmy Mather raised £930 to provide a “comfort fund” for Ward 4 at Ninewells Hospital.
A cheque was handed over to the ward and accepted on behalf of the hospital by charge nurse Karen Cree and senior charge nurse Sarah Wiseman.
A spokesman for the event said: ‘‘On February 25, club owners James and Denise Hendry, with the co-operation of Robin Mather and numerous bands and artists, held a charity night in the Taxi Club in memory of Jimmy Mather to raise money for a comfort fund to be given to Ward 4 where he spent his last days prior to passing away in December 2016.
“Many Dundee entertainers, including Jimmy’s brother, ‘Mr Piano Man’ Robin Mather, gave their support on the night and the money was handed over to James and Denise prior to being presented to the ward.
‘‘The couple are well-known for the charity work they do in the club and future ventures are planned for deserving causes.
‘‘The presentation to the ward was made at the club.
‘‘It just goes to show what a great club this is and what the loyal backing of its members can achieve.”
