ABERDEEN International Airport has donated £22,000 from its Community Fund in the last twelve months.

The Community Fund is open to groups, charities and organisations with links to education, the environment and economic regeneration.

During the last year, the airport has given a cash boost to more than 20 applicants including the 30th Aberdeen Guides, VSA and Cyrenians.

Bruce Watson, chairman of the Community Fund at Aberdeen International Airport, said: “The Aberdeen Airport Community Fund is a brilliant way for community groups to boost fundraising activities.

“We encourage groups with a focus on young people, the environment or that make a tangible and real difference in their local communities.

“We’re an important company in the Aberdeen city and shire region and are proud to back as many organisations as we can from our Community Fund.”

Funding was also given to several north-east groups including Celebrate Aberdeen and Befriend a Child.

The Community Fund committee is made up of airport staff, as well as representatives from the local authorities and government.

It meets four times a year with the next deadline for applications March 6.
