We are delighted to announce that we have established a two year partnership with The ARCHIE Foundation as the new main charity partner of the John Clark Motor Group.
The ARCHIE Foundation is a charity making the difference for sick children in Grampian, the Northern Isles, Tayside & Fife.
They work with the NHS to provide all the ‘extras’ that really do transform a sick child’s time in hospital and even improve their health.
Those extras can include:
They always have a focus on local children & they do everything they can to improve their experience during periods of serious illness.
Their current focus is on improving the facilities at The Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital, which is over 10 years old & will have cared for over a million children & their families since opening in January 2004.
One of the priorities that The ARCHIE Foundation have identified which needs to be addressed is the Outpatient Area. We have agreed to raise funds to redecorate & refurbish to make it a much more child friendly environment. This area of the Hospital will see over 1,000 children who are 16 or below pass through it's doors in one week alone.
In addition, they are currently working with the Ninewell's Hospital in Dundee to redevelop the building to include two children's surgical theatres. This will allow local children to be given emergency care in Dundee as opposed to having to travel through to Edinburgh.
The official launch for that project will be later this month.
In total we have agreed to raise £100,000 across the two year partnership from our Aberdeen based dealerships & we have pledged our support to the Ninewells Hospital Project & Edinburgh Sick Kids.
