It is with great pleasure that we at Ecocleen congratulate the fantastic children's charity 'Befriend a Child' for raising £49,000 from its Big Kids Ball event! Befriend A Child is an Aberdeen based charity dedicated to "support children and young people growing up in difficult life circumstances across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to achieve their full potential and develop into confident and competent adults".
A very heartfelt thanks to Ecocleen and their guests for supporting this year’s annual Big Kid’s Ball.
We hope everyone had a fantastic evening! Thanks to the generosity of everyone in attendance, we raised over £49,000 to be used towards our ongoing work supporting children and young people who are growing up in difficult life circumstances across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to develop into confident adults and reach their full potential.
This funding is crucial as we now support over 300 local children and young people annually through 1:1 befriending and mentoring, as well as operating school holiday play schemes, youth clubs and a grandparents as parents support group.
It is only thanks to the continued support from local individuals and business like yourselves that we are able to support those children and young people in our communities who need it most.
Befriend a Child hosted its annual Big Kid’s Ball event, an initiative to raise funds for the charity with business across Aberdeen to host a table for the event, which is exactly what Ecocleen Aberdeen did!
