BP give generously to local charity VSA

BP have come to the rescue of Aberdeen social care charity VSA to provide vital supplies for the most vulnerable people in the North-east.

Hundreds of sets of much-needed PPE like goggles, gloves and masks are set to be delivered to VSA’s residential sites to help keep staff and vulnerable people in their care safe.

BP also donated iPads and Kindles, to help VSA’s residents maintain video contact with friends and family and download books.

The energy major has also stepped up to provide hundreds of toilet rolls and day-to-day necessities like pasta, soft drinks, tea, coffee and even disposable plates, cups and cutlery.

All these items have been distributed between VSA’s 22 residential sites and are helping to ensure that the charity has plenty stock of items that their residents need.

BP are also encouraging employees to rally behind the charity and have launched a donation page for BP employees to donate to VSA’s covid-19 appeal.

Kenneth Simpson, VSA Chief Executive, said “We are delighted that BP has stepped forward to help us during this challenging period. They have been fantastic and ensured that we have been able to supply our residents with essential items. The iPads are also such a great way to help our residents maintain contact with their loved one(s).”

Peter Miller, BP Vice President Transformation, said: “BP has been supporting VSA’s Changing Lives Campaign and when we were contacted with this urgent appeal for PPE, housekeeping items and digital technology we were pleased to donate to help VSA keep looking after some of the most vulnerable people in their care at this difficult time.”

VSA provides in excess of 2 million hours of care through its 22 facilities in the Northeast and supports vulnerable people from birth to end of life.
