Aberdeen firm brings smiles to children’s faces with nursery garden gift

Infinity Partnership’s managing director Simon Cowie and Aberdeen Lads Club manager Angie Johnston

CHILDREN from local charity Aberdeen Lads Club are now able to play outside in all weathers, following a generous gift from accountancy and business advisory practice, Infinity Partnership.

Thanks to a £7,500 donation from Aberdeen-based Infinity, the Lads Club has laid artificial grass throughout its pre-school nursery outdoor space, enabling its youngsters to play, run and explore, safely.

Infinity made the donation to coincide with a major renovation project which saw the Lads Club’s Tillydrone facility undergo significant modernisation.

Aberdeen Lads Club manager, Angie Johnston said: “Outdoor play is so important for children, as it not only helps with their overall physical development and wellbeing, but also lets them build essential life skills, such as problem-solving, teamwork and risk management.

“It also means that they get plenty of natural light and fresh air, which as we all know helps them sleep better at night and in turn can improve their concentration levels.

“Plus playing outside is great fun and gives the youngsters the opportunity to explore and learn in a way that’s different to their indoor environment.”

Infinity Partnership managing director, Simon Cowie said: “Aberdeen Lads Club is such a fantastic organisation, providing vital services for families in Tillydrone and beyond.

“We were aware that the charity’s Dill Road building had recently benefited from a significant upgrade, and so wanted to do something for the children that would enhance their nursery experience.

“The weather in the North-east of Scotland isn’t always the kindest and we know how quickly real grass can turn into a bit of a muddy mess. We therefore wanted to provide funds for the artificial grass so that the nursery kids can play outside throughout the year.

“We also wanted to provide the Lads Club team with something that required much less maintenance, making life so much easier.”

As well as its pre-school nursery, Aberdeen Lads Club runs an after-school club, junior and senior youth clubs, and a number of holiday clubs. It also offers a range of family support initiatives.

Infinity is recognised for its accountancy, research and development tax relief, mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance expertise. As a practice, Infinity is a five-time winner at the British Accountancy Awards. Its offices are based at Carden Place in the West End of the city.
