The Wood Foundation has supported STV Children’s Appeal since 2013 for projects in the North East of Scotland.
Established by Sir Ian Wood and his immediate family in September 2007, the The Wood Foundation is a Scottish based Trust with a Global outlook, investing in economic, community and enterprise initiatives in Sub Saharan Africa and the UK.
Sir Ian Wood, Chairman of The Wood Foundation said:
“I believe that every one of us has a responsibility to commit some time, skills, knowledge and money, as each can afford, to help our communities. The Wood Foundation has a focus on supporting young people in Scotland to become successful, responsible and tolerant citizens. Supporting the STV Children’s Appeal extends our focus to child poverty in Scotland. This Appeal is particularly effective as, in addition to alleviating child poverty, it assists in research to identify the causes, challenge the perceptions, and aims to reduce the child poverty level.”
Sir Ian is also a member of the STV Children’s Appeal Board of Trustees.
The Wood Foundation has committed its 10th grant to the STV Children’s Appeal bringing the total of its support to £1.5m. Read more here.
