"letting my dad see me doing my Baton Relay "
Posted by feefee (as ),
due to my volunteering within my local health Board and local Authority, I am very lucky to know quite a few people from health and LA within Ayrshire & Arran.
I had asked one of them if he could help me and did he know anyone from IT within NHS Tayside, Ninewells hospital, could they get internet access to my dad to watch me doing my Baton Relay (live) within North Ayrshire on the 15th July 14.
I did ask only the day before, thought I would be pushing my luck for the short notice, but he pulled it off, he had spoken to someone who was going to sort it out for me.
The next day they had 2 ladies take 2 laptops to his room, they took 2 just in case 1 didn't work (that's what I call good planing) my dad was over the moon that he could see me doing my baton, it was a once in a lifetime event for me and my dad was so proud that I was picked to do it.
When he had to go into hospital he said he would watch it on the news (if I was on it), he wanted my son to take a good picture of me with the baton, as a keep sake. So for him to watch it live was fantastic.
I would like to thank everyone that was involved with making it happen.

I think all NHS premises should have free wifi.
