Aberdeen Cyrenians, originally started as soup kitchen in 1968 by Aberdeen University students, has grown to be one of the North East’s largest charities for helping the most vulnerable and socially excluded citizens. Aberdeen Cyrenians aims to help these individuals by providing access to food, shelter, clothing and toiletries as well as identifying the underlying issues to their homelessness.
Our Managing Director and Founder, Ann McRobb comments:
“To celebrate our 10-year milestone I was keen to do something meaningful and give back the local community that has served us so well. In the current climate with some families barely being able to afford their heating let alone eat, it is imperative to give back in a time of need. Working with our friends at Prospect 13 ensures we spread more awareness and bring in as much donations as possible.”
Prospect 13 Managing Director, Cerri McDonald adds:
“Doing good in the community is something that I am incredibly passionate about, and working closely with the Ann McRobb Associates team, means we can double our efforts and exposure to raise further awareness for such a worthy local cause”.
