Ledingham Chalmers pledges £1,500 to Scotland’s largest mental health charity
Sixty-nine people from across the north east business sector attended the firm’s construction lunch on Friday, 24 November, at Aberdeen’s No. 10 Bar and Restaurant, donating £1,020.
And now, Ledingham Chalmers’ own charitable trust has pledged to increase the total for the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) by £480 to £1,500.
Chairman and partner Jennifer Young said: “Mental health has been our fundraising focus this year. It’s an area that we know has a profound impact on so many aspects of our lives: our relationships, our work, our wellbeing and our quality of life.
“What SAMH does for people the length and breadth of the country is simply outstanding.
“As such, I’m pleased to say that over and above the funds raised last week, the firm will be making a donation to the charity for every Christmas card we send.”
SAMH director of external affairs, Jo Anderson, said: “We are delighted that Ledingham Chalmers has chosen to raise funds for SAMH through its construction lunch in Aberdeen.
“SAMH has represented the voice of people most affected by mental health issues in Scotland for more than 90 years.
“This money will help SAMH raise awareness, promote good mental health and support those in Scotland living with a mental health problem.”
