Mental Health Aberdeen’s (MHA) facilities have been given a boost thanks to hands-on help from new corporate donors, ADIL.
Staff from the oil and gas specialists visited the city centre charity over public holidays and evenings in April to help repaint and decorate the MHA offices in Aberdeen after deciding on the group as their chosen charity for 2015.
James Paton, managing director of ADIL said: “Mental Health Aberdeen is a place of respite and support for so many people in the city and shire. MHA was chosen to be ADIL’s charity of the year by our staff, who wanted to volunteer their time, as well as help raise money for this brilliant local cause. We hope our work to help improve the facilities here can make the building even more welcoming for those who come here to use the services on offer.”
The charity was chosen after all staff within the consultancy were asked to suggest and choose a local organisation to back. ADIL has committed to raising funds for the group throughout the year, handing over an initial four-figure donation to mark their support for the group.
Fiona Mooney, fundraising and marketing manager at MHA, said: “Having the support of local businesses is a boost to our resources and services which are in high demand. We appreciate that staff from the consultancy took the time to help us with our recent refurbishments to create comfortable surroundings for the people we help and care. It was great getting to know people ADIL, who helped with painting work across our offices.”
An independent consultancy with upwards of 150 staff at offices in Aberdeen and London, ADIL was recently identified as one of London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.
