On Thursday 1st December a team of Kellas volunteers spent the day at Abernecessities, a local charity providing much needed support to children and families in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
Launched in 2019, the charity has distributed hundreds of thousands of items to disadvantaged families including clothing, toys, baby equipment and maternity essentials.
Kellas has been supporting Abernecessities for the last three years through monetary and physical donations and staff volunteering. We were delighted to help out at their Christmas HQ by putting together Christmas Eve boxes containing pyjamas, slippers, toiletries, books and festive treats for children of all ages, and also delivering some of the boxes to local schools.
Our volunteering coincided with a visit to Abernecessities by STV who were filming for a future news item. Julie and Sarah from our team stepped up to talk about why we’re supporting the charity.
Huge thanks to the volunteer coordinators for welcoming us and showing us the ropes. Abernecessities does such an amazing job and makes a real difference to the families it supports.
