A visitor to ARI, Alistair Law said:
“This is truly an act of generosity that will help so many people, just at a time when they need it most. To be able to visit loved ones without the anxiety of finding a place to park sounds a little thing but take it from me, it’s not!”
Gillian Burnett has recently been visiting a relative in hospital. She commented:
“I just wanted to thank you for having the inspiration and will to build the multi storey car park. Words can’t do justice to what it means to have one less thing to worry about when making hospital visits. A car park may not be the most auspicious of buildings but in terms of fulfilling a daily, hourly need, it is second to none.”
The car park, which sits directly across from the main entrance to Foresterhill, has 13 floors of free parking.
Lady Wood added:
“We are very pleased that the new multi-storey car park has made an immeasurable difference, improving the overall experience for those visiting the hospital, without public funds being diverted from frontline services.”
The Wood Foundation was established in 2007 by Sir Ian Wood and his immediate families. As well as economic development in the North-east, it also focusses on developing young people in Scotland and transforming livelihoods through the tea industry in East Africa.
