TECA - The Event Complex Aberdeen choose to partner with children's charity Charlie House for first two years.
The world-class facility, which opens this summer, has already confirmed various entertainment and exhibitions including, Elton John, Alice Cooper, Jack Whitehall, Nerf War and Dedicated 2 Weddings Show, and is expected to draw visitors from out with the Aberdeen area and boost the local economy.
The two-year partnership with local children’s charity Charlie House includes TECA assisting in raising vital funds and awareness for the charity which supports babies, children and young people with complex disabilities and life-limiting conditions and their families in the North East of Scotland.
Susan Crighton, Director of fundraising at Charlie House, says, “We are thrilled to announce this key partnership for 2019/20 and very much look forward to working with the team. There are key synergies between both organisations in terms of they are bringing this amazing new facility to the North-east for the people of the North-east and that is exactly what we are planning with our specialist support centre, which will be the first of its kind in the North-east of Scotland.”
Charlie House launched a public fundraising campaign in November 2018 to raise £8million for a specialist support centre being built on the ground of Woodend Hospital.
Louise Stewart, Head of entertainment, sales and marketing, says, “The new venue is set to make concert attendance much more accessible for the families Charlie House support, with a specific changing place being installed which is essential to enable the families to spend extended time away from home. We are also thrilled to continue to be part of ‘Attitude is Everything’ which improves Deaf and disabled people’s access to live music by working in partnership with audiences, artists and the music industry to implement a Charter of Best Practice across the UK, while we work towards achieving our gold standard.”
