Apache North Sea Donates to Aberdeen Cancer Support Charity
Cancer support charity Maggie’s Aberdeen is set to receive a $100,000 (GBP 75,000) donation from Apache North Sea, which has backed the centre for almost five years.
Apache was one of the first companies to support the appeal to raise the money needed to open the Aberdeen centre and has supported Maggie’s every year since its inception. The charity provides free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their families and friends.
“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,” Apache Region Vice President for the North Sea, Jon Graham, said in a company statement.
“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,” he added.
Paula Cormack, centre fundraising manager at Maggie’s Aberdeen, said she was thrilled with the donation.
“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,” Cormack said in an organization statement.
“Without Apache’s ongoing commitment Maggie’s would not be here to offer our vital program of cancer support,” Cormack added.
