Dundee & Angus Businesses Help Bring Cheer to Children Across the Region


22nd December 2016

Last week over 60 business from across the region came together for the annual Dundee & Angus Chamber of Commerce Xmas Social – Cocktails at the Quay, sponsored this year by Chamber Platinum Partners, MacRoberts.

In the beautiful surroundings of the recently opened venue, The Quay and with stunning views across the silvery Tay to the evening lights of Fife members came together to celebrate the end of another fantastic year for businesses in the area.

This year, as an alternative to Secret Santa, the team at DACC took the opportunity to assist two of their members charities with their Christmas Appeals and asked guests to do the same.

On the night their Secret Santa table was overwhelmed with donations to both the Help for Kids Christmas Toy Appeal and Cash for Kids Mission Christmas. More than 50 presents were donated on the night with both charities benefitting from the generosity of Chamber members.

Stacey Wallace from Help for Kids said “We were delighted the Chamber of Commerce decided to help our charity, this year in Dundee there have been so many more referrals so every present really counts. We have had roughly 870 referrals this year and they still coming in. Thanks to everyone who donated.”

Alison Carr from Cash for Kids said “To date we will be assisting over 4000 disadvantaged children living in Tayside and Northeast Fife and our Mission is to assist every child and through the help of businesses like yourselves coming on board we are well on our way to being able to assist all the referrals.”
