Graham + Sibbald to support our heroes at Christmas

Leading firm of chartered surveyors, Graham + Sibbald have donated £1000 to help the charity ‘Poppy Scotland - Supporting our Heroes’.

The money has been generated by sending an e-card at Christmas to the company’s clients rather than the more costly process of posting off traditional printed cards. This year Graham + Sibbald decided to donate to Poppy Scotland.

Robert McRae from Poppy Scotland who received the cheque, said he was delighted with this gift as the money will be put to good use for therapy, housing, mobility aids and retraining the veterans. Without these donations, none of this would be possible.

Ian Gillies, Senior Partner at Graham + Sibbald said: “At Graham + Sibbald, the environment and social responsibility rank high on our business agenda. We are delighted therefore to have reduced our carbon footprint by distributing e-cards once again this year, offering Christmas greetings to our clients. We are even more pleased to have been able to make a donation, to Poppy Scotland – Supporting our Heroes, a charity which provides support to ensure Scotland’s ex-Servicemen and women receive the best care and support possible.”
