Ballater Hardship Fund
We are well over the £30,000 mark on funds raised with Gordon Riddler having just completed his EVEREST climb equivalent of 29,029ft up Craigendarroch and had raised at last count £1000 to add to the fund.
The fund is targeting the many part time and minimum hours employees in the area between Crathie & Dinnet by offering them Coop Credit cards to allow people to cover food & essentials along with electricity but give them the security of anonymity as we live in a close community. The recipients can return to their nominated FACE, who becomes like a Buddy and not only supplies the card but keeps contact to ensure on their mental wellbeing.
