The Wood Foundation has supported the Appeal, which addresses the immediate impacts and root causes of childhood poverty, for eight years. The funding has predominantly been awarded to organisations in the North-east of Scotland.
The Wood Foundation also sits on the board of the Appeal.
Ali MacLachlan, UK Director of The Wood Foundation, said:
“We are incredibly proud when we hear of the successes empowered by this funding in communities here in the North-east. These organisations, who understand the needs of local families, are turning lives around and giving children a better start in life.
“No child should have to worry about hardship over embracing opportunities to have fun, excel, learn, and grow. Supporting families and ensuring they are living safe and healthy lives must be supported within our communities.
