Donation to British Heart Foundation
An Aberdeen marketing communications company has donated £5,000 to the British Heart Foundation.
As part of an ongoing partnership with the British Heart Foundation, Jasmine Ltd has pledged to donate a percentage of its cost per copy service and consumable supply revenue to the charity.
The company decided to team up with BHF after Keith Tait, director of Printagraph which has since merged with Jasmine Ltd, died following a heart attack in 2012.
Jasmine Ltd’s production director Keith Adams also died of an undiagnosed heart condition last year.
Sales director Sean Hills said: “Our clients use their office printers throughout every working day and we are delighted that a percentage of this everyday spend will help support BHF and its aim to end heart disease.
“Our staff and clients know firsthand what it is like to lose someone to cardiovascular disease, so supporting BHF is an important part of the work we do.”
Kathy McIlwaine, the charity’s fundraising manager in Scotland, said: “The British Heart Foundation funds important research here in Aberdeen, so we are keen to work with local companies who want to help us work towards our goal of a world free of the fear of heart and circulatory disease.
“This donation of £5,000 is very welcome, and we look forward to an ongoing relationship with Jasmine.”
