Supporting our local communities is an integral part of our working life at Repsol Sinopec Resources UK Limited.
We partner with organisations and with our people to identify the projects that create a meaningful impact and make a positive difference in the communities in which we operate.
We are now in our fifth consecutive year of support to the Maggie's centre in Aberdeen which provides practical, emotional and social support for those with cancer, their families and friends, from the centre within the grounds of Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
Charities of the year
In addition to support given to Maggie's, our nominated charities for 2017 are Horseback UK, Alzheimer Scotland and the Forget-Me-Not Club.
The company has committed to matching funds raised by our staff on behalf of these very worthy causes, up to a grand total of £25,000.
HorseBack UK is a charity based near Aboyne that helps servicemen and women who have been mentally and physically scarred regain their confidence, dignity and mobility through working with horses.
Alzheimer Scotland and the Forget-Me-Not club support people with dementia, their families and carers. AS is a national charity, offering care, help and information across the country to ensure that nobody faces dementia alone.
The FMNs is a local charity with a stated aim of making life easier for those who are affected by dementia across Deeside. Staffed almost entirely by volunteers, they offer a wide range of activities and support from their resource centre in Banchory and in the community.
Each of these charities makes a significant community impact in the North East of Scotland and we are proud to be working with them.
