Tayside Cancer Support, which is run out of St Aidan’s Centre, Broughty Ferry, offers support services for people who have been affected by cancer including patients, family and friends, alongside support groups that offer friendship and reassurance through group activities including talks, demonstrations and different relax therapies.

The donation is part of a local charity initiative which supports causes nominated by employees. The charity was nominated by Queensferry Crossing manager Nick Forbes, as he knows people who hold the charity close to their hearts.

The funds will pay for 25 counselling and support sessions for one month.

Linda Swan, Tayside Cancer Support chairwoman, said: “Offering free support sessions is when someone requires it is out main priority and this money will help us continue to do this without a waiting list.”

Iain Murray, BEAR Scotland Manging Director, said: “This is the third independent local charity to benefit from our community benefits initiative which asks the team to propose causes close to their hearts. It allows us to make a difference in the communities in which we operate.”
