Aberdein Considine employees smash 40th anniversary fundraising target

Aberdein Considine employees smash 40th anniversary fundraising target

Teams from across national law firm Aberdein Considine have raised more than £50,000 as part of their charity fundraising programme during the last twelve months.

To help mark its 40th anniversary, the firm aimed to raise at least £40,000 to support four Children’s Hospital Charities across Scotland and the North East of England. The firm has exceeded its goal, with an impressive total of over £53,000 having been raised so far.

Aberdein Considine has over 500 employees located across 19 offices in Scotland and Newcastle and the funds raised will be split between four key charities which have worked together to match the geographical locations of the firm.

The charities which will benefit are:

  • The Archie Foundation – Aberdeen
  • Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity
  • Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity
  • The Great North Children’s Hospital Foundation – Newcastle

All four charities help provide valuable services to babies, children, young people and their families by supporting their medical care, mental health and wellbeing.

The money raised will help fund everything from daily activities, youth work and play initiatives to life changing equipment and bereavement support.

In addition to the fundraising push the firm also encourages employees to get involved in volunteering initiatives throughout the year.

Commenting on the fundraising activities Aberdein Considine Managing Partner Jacqueline Law was very clear about the firm’s responsibilities to local communities.

She said: “The last few years have been extremely tough for many people across the country and supporting the communities in which our employees live and work has been extremely rewarding.

Our colleagues have made extraordinary efforts, not only raising vital funds, but having fun along the way. We’ve witnessed incredible acts of bravery, such as skydiving and firewalking, as well as gruelling endurance events. One team undertook a 24-hour exercise challenge, and another successfully conquered seven Munros in a single day!

Alongside these achievements, our teams have come together to organise social events including a delightful teddy bears’ picnic, a disco that spanned the ages and an exhilarating battle of the bands event.”

A spokesperson for the charitable collective said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Aberdein Considine for all their efforts.

The money raised has been incredible and it will go a very long way to helping us to continue to serve and support young people and families.

This special partnership will make a remarkable difference to seriously ill children from across Scotland and Newcastle by helping to fund life-changing hospital projects and support services. Thank you again to everyone involved.”
