Cancer support charity Maggie’s Aberdeen is set to receive a £75,000 donation from Apache North Sea, the offshore contractor which has supported the charity from the beginning nearly five years ago.
The charity provides free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their families and friends.
Jon Graham, Apache’s Vice-President for the North Sea, said: “We are thrilled to be able to donate such a sizeable amount to Maggie’s. We know how much it will assist with its annual running costs and support services.
“Knowing the vital role that the cancer support charity provides to the people of Aberdeen city and shire, we are delighted to be able to contribute to allow the Centre to continue providing support for so many in the North-east.”
Maggie’s Aberdeen Centre has supported more than 35,000 people with cancer, and their family and friends, from across the region since it opened. Fund-raising manager Paula Cormack, said: “Apache has been an outstanding supporter of Maggie’s since day one and we are incredibly grateful for their generosity in this immensely valuable partnership.
“Without Apache’s ongoing commitment Maggie’s would not be here to offer our vital programme of cancer support.”
