A nightclub operator has shown its support for the specialist care provided at Milton Keynes Hospital with a £5,000 donation.

The department of critical care will use the grant from nightclub operator The Deltic Group to buy an intensive care chair to help with the recovery of critically ill patients.

Chief executive of The Deltic Group, Peter Marks, said: “We have our headquarters in Milton Keynes and we believe in supporting our local community. We made the donation from our Echo Trust charity to the hospital because its services are so important.

“In fact, one of our colleagues owes her life to the care she received there.”

Accountant Sara Dignam was treated for meningitis in the critical care department in 1991 and made a full recovery.

Sara said: “I am delighted we can give this support.

“A big thank you goes to all our customers who give so generously and to our staff who collect the money at our venues.”
