Ledingham Chalmers is hosting the charity event at the Belmont Cinema’s Kino Bar in Aberdeen on Wednesday, 20 March, as part of Charlie House’s Venture 2019 challenge.
Charlie House is a local children’s charity that supports babies, children and young people with complex disabilities and life limiting conditions. This challenge sees teams, including the firm’s LED Factor, compete against each other to turn an initial £100 gift from their employers into as much cash as possible for the charity.
All money raised will go directly to the Big Build appeal for a specialist support centre built in the grounds of Woodend Hospital in the city, and the eight-week challenge culminates in an awards ceremony at Ardoe House Hotel on Thursday, 28 March.
The firm has offices in Aberdeen, Inverness, Stirling and Edinburgh, and chairman and partner, Jennifer Young, said: “We’ve chosen an 'out of the comfort zone' theme which is all about organising events, and setting ourselves weekly challenges, that inspire us to push ourselves and face our fears — from tire flips to close encounters with snakes — all in return for donations to this magnificent cause.”
In keeping with this theme, Ledingham Chalmers also hosted an evening in its Aberdeen offices with surgeon and rugby medic Lou McCullough — the first woman to triumph on Channel 4’s SAS Who Dares Wins reality show. Lou was one of a number of contestants faced with tremendously demanding physical and mental challenges in the harsh conditions of the Chilean Andes, concluding with an 18-hour interrogation.
Doors open at 6.30pm with the film starting at 7pm, and a raffle scheduled for 9am. Book by emailing email@example.com and donating £12 — or more if you prefer — to the firm’s JustGiving page quoting ‘Top Gun.'
