Title: Family Donation in Memory of Angus McKain from Glenrothes

Motion Text:

That the Parliament commends the generosity of the family of the late Angus McKain, who was from Glenrothes, on making a substantial donation in his memory to the respiratory department at Victoria Hospital; recognises that Angus, who passed away in 2016, was well known to that staff at Ward 43, where he was treated for interstitial lung disease (ILD); praises his wife, Anne, and their daughters, on raising money to help others with the condition; notes that this has included a collection at the funeral, a fundraising event and a generous donation from the Balgonie Masonic Lodge; understands that the £2,800 raised will be used to purchase three portable high-flow heated oxygen delivery systems, which assist people with ILD by improving their oxygen levels and enhancing their comfort; understands that this will enable many people with the condition to be discharged and receive their medical support at home, and wishes the McKain family the very best.
