Contractor working on Hillcrest’s St Machar development donates fantastic festive haul of goodies

Posted: 20th December 2019

Our contractors, Robertson Partnership Homes who are constructing our St Machar Road development in Aberdeen have done Santa proud, raising an incredible £800 in only two days for presents for disadvantaged children.

The fantastic act of generosity from Robertson’s St Machar site team was part of Northsound 1’s Mission Christmas appeal, and the donations consisted of a combination of money and donated gifts.

The money raised was then used to buy further gifts, bringing the total to 84 gifts.

Kelly Simms, group community development adviser at Robertson Partnership Homes, said: “Every year we are involved with supporting the Cash for Kids appeal, Mission Christmas.

“Rab Ruston, who has been in charge of these very worthwhile proceedings took it upon himself to go out onto the site at St Machar with the donation box and raised an incredible £800 worth of donations in two days.

“We were so overwhelmed with all the generosity. We contacted Northsound 1 and Jeff and Lauren from the morning show came to the main office to pick up all the presents personally!”

Cash for Kids’ Mission Christmas is an appeal run by Planet Radio’s various local radio stations including Your Tay FM, Northsound 1 and Forth 1. To find out more about the appeal and how to donate, click here.
