Two charities in Aberdeen have written to thank the staff and pupils of Meldrum Academy after each receiving donations from the proceeds of our end of term ‘dress as you please’ day.

Aberdeen Cyrenians provide advice and support on a range of issues for people affected by homelessness. Homelessness is challenging at any time of the year but as the cold weather sets in the reality of being without a place to call home are heightened. The money received will go towards providing hot meals and shower and laundry facilities. Vanessa Wilhelm, Community and Events Fundraiser, wrote to thanks us for the £1031.40 donation, and said that it would also provide support and resources to improve the long term situation.

Northsound Cash for Kids received £1000 from our charity fund. This year due to the generosity of the local people in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, 9170 disadvantaged children woke up to gifts on Christmas morning.
