Aberdeen children’s charity receives much-needed donation from our North Scotland region

17 December 2021

North Scotland region has donated money to an Aberdeen charity in need of funds to upgrade equipment.

Charlie House was awarded £1,000 by our North Scotland region through its Community Champions scheme, which is supporting groups with two donations of up to £1,000 available every month in the region.

Charlie House provides specialist support to more than 100 babies, children, and young people across the North East of Scotland who have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, and provides support to their families.

Grants and Trusts funding officer, Oliver Middleton said: “We are thrilled to receive this support from Persimmon Homes at a time when we’re in need of new laptops for staff.

“With restrictions lifting our team are adapting working practices with a blend of working in the office and from homes and it’s vital that we provide our team with equipment to accommodate these new working patterns.

“The funds will greatly improve the functionality of Charlie House, ensuring a smooth transition to blended working enabling our teams to maximise their day-to-day operations. Ultimately, allowing our services and fundraising teams to work to full capacity, and positively effect even more lives across North East Scotland.”

Managing director at Persimmon Homes North Scotland, James Mackay, said: “Charlie House provides a vital service to people across our region, and we felt compelled to offer our support.

“Our Community Champions initiative was set up to support people living in the areas that we are building new homes and Charlie House is an inspirational example.”

Persimmon Homes North Scotland is currently building new homes in Dunfermline, Glenboig, Guardbridge, Carnoustie, Dundee, Kinross, Cleland, Arbroath, Wormy, Kirkcaldy and Markinch.
