Living by Robertson delivers some festive cheer at The Yard
Housebuilder Living by Robertson got into the festive spirit with a visit to the ‘winter wonderland’ at their nominated Christmas charity, The Yard, in Edinburgh.
The adventure play centre for disabled children, young people and their families, established in Edinburgh in 1986, now has three sites and supports hundreds of families across Scotland.
Like most charities, The Yard has seen an increased need for its vital services, and at the same time, their ability to fundraise has been severely impacted. First started by a group of parents, teachers and social workers who wanted to create a safe place for disabled children to play, now the charity offers support to disabled children of all ages and their families. Activities are available for children from the very start with early years sessions, youth clubs for young people with activities like karaoke, roller discos and organised trips as well as holiday support to provide respite for parents during school holidays.
Margaret Davidson, sales and marketing director at Living by Robertson, said: “The Yard is a wonderful, welcoming space and the atmosphere the team has created here is joyous. We know how hard the charity has worked to continue to fundraise over the last two years and hope our donation will lead to others choosing to donate to The Yard this Christmas.”
Jenny MacDonald, The Yard’s director of development, added: “We are extremely grateful to Living by Robertson for choosing to support The Yard. This donation will make a great difference for our disabled children and young people and our families at The Yard.”
Living by Robertson’s donation of £2,000 will fund The Yard’s Christmas parties this year.
