Over the course of its nine-year partnership, £1.35m has been granted to the Appeal to distribute to local charities tackling the immediate impact and root causes of child poverty.
UK Director Ali MacLachlan said:
“We are proud of our long-standing partnership. The STV Children’s Appeal team works closely with community connected organisations across Scotland, addressing the stark reality facing too many families. It is committed to charities which so vitally promote hope and aspiration, regardless of circumstances, that deliver innovative solutions, empowering young people to realise their potential.”
The Wood Foundation’s Executive Chairman, Sir Ian Wood, sits on the Appeal’s board.
