NRCC made a donation to the Nairn T&C Hospital in memory of Jeanne Tolmie, past Chair of Nairn River Community Council

Nairn River Community Council made a donation of £1000 to Nairn Hospital to fund the Daily Sparkle, a newspaper for patients in name of Jeanne Tolmie. 
 Jeanne Tolmie was a long-standing Chair of NRCC and for many years, was a great supporter of the Hospital. 
Tommy Hogg, previous Chair of NRCC and Vice Chair to Jean presented the cheque to Aoife Morris and Phyllis Burnett. Karen Tolmie representing Jean at the presentation said "Jean would be delighted and honoured to be publicly remembered by the community and the hospital which was so good to her".
Karen was pleased that NRCC chose to commemorate Jean in this way.
Ros Philip, District Manager Nairn, helped to organise the presentation.
Jeanne retired from River Community Council in 2012 after 34  years service. The images below are of Jeanne with her colleague Margeret Mackintosh and Fergus Ewing MSP at a ceremony held in the Courthouse to mark her years of service to the town.
