Burness Paull Foundation Christmas appeal 2020
Three brilliant charities chosen by colleagues
Each year The Burness Paull Foundation tries to ensure that local communities get a little extra help to make Christmas special for those who need it most.
Colleagues in the Aberdeen office supported AberNecessities with the donation of many gifts to help them make up Christmas Eve boxes for distributing to families throughout the North-East, as well as financial donations and an additional £500 cheque from the Foundation.
In Glasgow colleagues voted for The Food Train, which helps support who are no longer able to manage independently, through age, ill health, frailty or disability. Each week, Food Train delivers hundreds of grocery, ensuring those most in need have access to fresh groceries. Gifts from employees at Burness Paull, along with the Foundation donation of £500, went along way to towards helping vulnerable people at Christmas with food parcel deliveries.
Age Scotland was the chosen charity for the Edinburgh office. Age Scotland support and enable more than 700 community groups across Scotland, providing information and advice for anyone who is over the age of 50. Lindsay Wallace & Jackie Robertson delivered 94 parcels to Age Scotland on behalf of colleagues, which will be distributed to local homes ahead of Christmas. The Burness Paull Foundation also donated £500 which will enable Age Scotland to make 100 friendship calls over the festive period.
Christmas Jumper Day for Save the Children
On 11th December over 100 colleagues from across Burness Paull donned amazing festive jumpers for the day and raised £510 raised for Save the Children – cash which will be used to support children from struggling families in the UK and beyond.
