Dundee Cheque Handover 2019

The team in our Dundee office were delighted to raise £7,146.80 for local charity Food Train.

The local charity provide a variety of support services, which are delivered by volunteers to the elderly to allow them to maintain their independence for as long as possible. Services include food shopping, befriending and a “Meal Maker” service allowing volunteers to share an extra portion of their meal with an elderly neighbour.

The Dundee office have been taking part in all sorts of activities to raise money this year for the charity including the Edinburgh Marathon Relay, a race night, banana bread competition and their year round tuck shop.

Grant Simpson, Regional Manager for the Food Train said: “On behalf of Food Train, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff for their amazing fundraising efforts throughout the year, and to Digby Brown, for matching the monies raised. This donation will make a huge impact to the work of Food Train in Dundee.”

Robert Kernaghan, Partner in our Dundee office, said: “We have thoroughly enjoyed raising funds for such a fantastic charity. The Food Train offer a great variety of services to the elderly across Dundee allowing them to remain independent. The work that the volunteers do should really be commended and we are glad to be able to support the services they offer.”
