Texo, the Aberdeen-based multi-disciplinary engineering and construction company, is delighted to be supporting the Christmas with ARCHIE campaign by sponsoring one of the ten Christmas trees which will be on display in Marischal Square during November.
The trees, which will be individually decorated by the sponsors will create a fantastic display in the centre of Aberdeen and will then be auctioned from November 23-30 so that the winning bidders can enjoy them all the way through December.
The money raised from the auction will help to support the vital work done by The ARCHIE Foundation, which provides advanced training, specialist equipment, child-friendly environments and trained staff support for ill babies and children and their families.
“All businesses have experienced a difficult 2020,” said Richard Lamb, Work-Space Solutions Managing Director at TEXO. “We feel it is important to also remember charities like The ARCHIE Foundation who have lost a lot of funding this year and still have children and families to support. We are delighted to be sponsoring one of the charity’s trees and our team is excited about being involved with such a fantastic Christmas campaign.”
“We have had a really tough few months like many charities, with income severely impacted and yet requests for help increasing hugely.” said Emily Findlay from The ARCHIE Foundation. “We really want this campaign to be a huge success to ensure we keep our vital services at The Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital, The Neonatal Unit and Grampian Child Bereavement going. The businesses that sponsor us will have the chance to decorate their tree in any way they like before they are put on display behind glass at Marischal Square Atrium for all of Aberdeen to see. These trees will then be auctioned to the highest bidders with all funds coming to The ARCHIE Foundation.
The Christmas Tree Auction will help fill funding gaps for the charity, thereby safeguarding ongoing funding for vital services, whilst bringing Christmas cheer to Aberdeen city centre, and the full effect will be open from November 1st
