Proc­tors staff pick SCAA as their char­ity of the year

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS - Clare Damodaran

Staff from Blair­gowriebased con­struc­tion so­lu­tions com­pany Proc­tors have voted to support Scot­land’s Char­ity Air Am­bu­lance (SCAA) as their char­ity part­ner for the year ahead.

Scot­land’s Char­ity Air Am­bu­lance re­spond to time-crit­i­cal med­i­cal emer­gen­cies and can reach 90% of Scot­land’s pop­u­la­tion within 25 min­utes.

As an east Perthshire busi­ness work­ing across the world, the tech­nol­o­gysavvy team at Proc­tors say they are proud to have a life­sav­ing char­ity based on their doorstep, serv­ing not only their com­mu­nity but the whole of Scot­land.

And Proc­tor Group staff have made a strong, if bruis­ing, start to their fundrais­ing with a team of eight sur­viv­ing the fa­mous 15km ob­sta­cle race, Rough Run­ner, and rais­ing over £1300 for the char­ity in the process.

Proc­tor Group man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Keira Proc­tor, is de­lighted to get be­hind the team’s fundrais­ing ef­forts and gave each of the rough run­ners a day off to re­cu­per­ate.

She said: “We ex­pect that this re­la­tion­ship with SCAA will see in­creases in mo­ti­va­tion and per­sonal devel­op­ment from the team as the or­gan­ised fundrais­ing gives staff au­ton­omy about how they are mak­ing de­ci­sions.

“Im­por­tantly for the Proc­tor Group it helps with in­no­va­tion too as staff will have to think out­side the box to come up with what they are go­ing to do to raise funds for this char­ity, which re­lies en­tirely on the peo­ple and com­pa­nies of Scot­land for their fund­ing.

“We are a large em­ployer in the area and it’s great to see staff proud to share the story of SCAA with their per­sonal net­works. It brings work and home life closer to­gether in a re­ally pos­i­tive way.”

He­len MacGre­gor, re­gional fundrais­ing man­ager with SCAA, wel­comed the support from the firm.

She said: “We were de­lighted to hear that 78% of the vot­ing staff wanted to support SCAA – what won­der­ful ev­i­dence that SCAA is at the fore­front of peo­ple’s minds.

“The on­go­ing com­mit­ment of com­pa­nies is vi­tal to our fu­ture so we are de­lighted to have the back­ing, not only of an in­dus­try leader, but of a large and lo­cal em­ployer.

“We can’t wait to see what great ideas this pi­o­neer­ing group come up with!”
