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, stated to be delighted with this gift as the money will be put in 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, in lieu of the printing and postage costs saved, 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.”

Notes to Editor
Poppyscotland is the leading charity supporting ex-Servicemen and women and their families in Scotland. We are probably best known for running the iconic Scottish Poppy Appeal, but we work all year round to help veterans and their families receive the care and support they urgently need.
The Scottish Poppy Appeal raises over £2 million each year and, combined with our other year-round fundraising, we are able to provide financial assistance to thousands of ex-Servicemen and women as well as helping to fund specialist services such as long term care, housing and employment. We were established in 1921 as The Earl Haig Fund Scotland but adopted our current name and logo in 2006 to reflect our revised fundraising activities and charitable services work.
In June 2011 we merged with our sister charity The Royal British Legion (TRBL), which operates in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, to form the largest charity group supporting the Armed Forces community across the whole of the UK.
Poppyscotland continues to operate as a distinct charity with the TRBL group of charities and rely entirely on public donations to allow us to continue our life-changing work. Contact: Robert McRae, Scottish Poppy Appeal Organiser, Tel: 0141 427 8490
