Meston Reid & Co donates Christmas party money to trio of good causes
Three Aberdeen charities are receiving a festive season funds boost thanks to city accountants and tax advisors Meston Reid & Co.
The firm is donating the money it would normally spend on its Christmas party – as well as donations from its staff – to the good causes.
Mental Health Aberdeen, Sue Ryder Care’s specialist neurological centre at Dee View Court and Aberdeen Cyrenians – which provides support for vulnerable people and those in crisis – will all benefit from an equal share of a £2,160 fund.
It’s made up of £1,500 that would normally go towards the firm’s festive celebrations as well as £330 of donations by staff that have been matched by Meston Reid.
Mark Brown, a partner at Meston Reid & Co, said: “Given that staff parties are simply not possible this year, we decided to direct the money instead towards good causes that do such fantastic work across the city and beyond.
“We were also pleased to match generous donations from individual members of staff who wanted to add to the overall total. Our firm is 30 years old in 2020 so this felt like a fitting way to help us mark a milestone anniversary.”
