Phil Anderson Financial Services donates £1,000 to Aberdeen Cyrenians
North east-based Phil Anderson Financial Services has donated £1,000 to Aberdeen Cyrenians after it matched a donation made by Skipton Building Society.
Aberdeen Cyrenians is a charity dedicated to supporting people affected by homelessness, violence, domestic abuse and other forms of social exclusion.
The charity was nominated by Phil Anderson Financial Services which has offices in Aberdeen, Ellon and Inverurie. The firm’s decision to match the donation means that the charity has received £2,000 in total.
Skipton Building Society awarded the donation to Aberdeen Cyrenians through the society’s inaugural £40,000 Community Giving scheme. Forty community groups and charities across the UK have been chosen to receive a £1,000 pot of funding after being nominated by mortgage brokers and employees of intermediary firms.
Skipton Intermediaries launched Community Giving to give intermediaries the chance to reward charities and community groups which support housing and homelessness. More than 90 nominations were received and now the 40 successful good causes have been announced.
Chris Bennett Taylor, head of corporate and business services at Aberdeen Cyrenians, said: “Firstly, thanks so much to Phil Anderson for nominating us for the grant through Skipton Building Society funding. It’s very generous for them to match the funding and hugely appreciated. Thanks also to Skipton for this valuable donation.”
