Bumi Armada and Befriend a Child are bringing Easter joy to the lives of many local children this March. The annual Christmas party that takes place each December at the Aberdeen Altens Hotel was postponed due to restrictions, therefore it was decided that an Easter Extravaganza would replace it this year.

Each year, the local befriending charity look forward to having a celebration for all volunteers and their befriendees sponsored in order to cover costs. This time, Bumi Armada decided to make this very special donation.

“Bumi Armada are delighted to support Befriend a Child in making Easter special for some of the less fortunate children and young adults in our local area. After yet another challenging year, we hope sponsoring the event will help create some happy smiles.” Karen Ogston – Senior HR Manager

The Easter party will be taking place at the Aberdeen Alten Hotel on the 20th March.  For each of the children and young people that the charity supports this generous sponsorship means that they will be able to enjoy Easter themed ganes, a full 2 course lunch, a disco and an escape room activity for the older children.

“The team were delighted to be able to go ahead with an Easter party this year. It means so much to our children, young people, befrienders, and mentors. It’s lovely to see them enjoying themselves and having fun with the other children, despite the difficult life circumstances we know they face each day” Jean – Head of Operations

Befriend a Child is a local charity which supports children and young people growing up in difficult life circumstances across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to help them achieve their full potential and develop into confident and competent young adults.
