We have recently donated more than £13,000 to the local charity, Community Food Initiatives North East (CFINE), to fund an electric cargo bike for vital food deliveries. The bike will allow increased access to fresh food and emergency food parcels for those who cannot make their way to the CFINE premises, for health or mobility reasons. It will also ensure those in self-isolation in the Torry, Cove and Kincorth areas will receive vital supplies throughout the duration of the coronavirus pandemic.
As a Trust Port, we have a strong ethos of communicating and interacting with our stakeholders. We believe that this includes anyone who has an interest in the Harbour, including port users, local residents, local communities, environmental groups, local authorities, and local and national politicians. By working together, the Board and stakeholders can deliver a vibrant, prosperous port which will provide a bright and secure future for future generations.
Our Community Action Fund was originally started in 2014 and has since supported more than 200,000 people in Aberdeen city and shire. The Fund has attracted praise from Aberdeen’s flagship third-sector interface organisation, the Aberdeen Council for Voluntary Organisations, which has been instrumental in developing the fund.
Aberdeen Harbour runs an annual photography competition with the photography students at the North East Scotland College (NESCol). This year, the 20 winning entries were displayed at Aberdeen International Airport, to be viewed by arriving and departing passengers.
