ABERDEEN Harbour Board has today launched a £30,000 community support programme for charities and groups undertaking work local to the port.
The programme – which has been named ‘supPORT-all’ – will benefit four organisations through financial donations, volunteer and resource commitments, and a marketing support package delivered in partnership with video production company Signal.
Two financial awards of £10,000 and two awards of £5,000 will be donated by the Harbour throughout the year.
Stephanie Flynn, Aberdeen Harbour Board community relations manager, said: “Recognising the profound effects of COVID-19 on both our local community and the charitable sector, supPORT-all will go beyond financial contributions and provide commitments of time, resources and equipment, as well as all-important marketing expertise.
“Our new supPORT-all programme builds on the outstanding work enabled by our Community Action Fund, which has supported more than 200,000 children and adults through donations of £60,000 since 2014.”
