The Matthew Woodman Foundation recently donated a water cooler to the Western Isles Hospital’s Emergency Department for use with staff and patients, as well as a portable TV trolley stand for the hospital’s paediatric bay.
The foundation was established by Kimberley Woodman in memory of her young son Matthew, who died in August 2018 on the island, aged only 20 months with an undiagnosed heart condition.
Kimberley, who has family connections to the island, said: ‘As you can imagine this was an extremely difficult time for me, my family and my friends.
‘However the support we received was overwhelming. In his memory, I set up the Matthew Woodman Foundation in hope of paying back and helping others who are going through a scary time in life.’
Lachlan Mac Pherson, NHS Western Isles Hospitals Manager, commented: ‘On behalf of NHS Western Isles and our hospital teams, I would like to sincerely thank Kimberley and the Foundation for their kind and generous donations.’
