Peterhead chief in NHS gesture as League One chairman opens up rooms for workers
The Blue Toon chief owns a restaurant with rooms in Balmedie, around a 20-minute drive from Aberdeen’s main hospital and has given the five-bedroomed Cock and Bull over to health workers.
Speaking to the League One club’s website, Morrison said: “We were made aware of NHS staff travelling into the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary (ARI) from Aberdeenshire including some from Macduff – close to a 100-mile round-trip.
“They were looking for somewhere to rest their heads in between what was sometimes double shifts as opposed to making a long journey home and back in to work.
“We got in touch and offered them a place at the Cock and Bull.
“Our restaurant is closed just now so it is a difficult time for everyone but the NHS people at the ARI are on the front-line and doing tremendous work for everyone. If this can help them in some way, I would be delighted.”
