At Abbotswell we choose to support a range of charities throughout the school year. With your help and support we will continue to raise money and make a difference for people less fortunate than ourselves.
This year our pupils decided our chosen Christmas charity will be the Aberdeen Cyrenians. Following our Christmas shows last week we can now announce that we have raised a staggering
from our ticket sales and raffles.
Thank you for your generosity!
Aberdeen Cyrenians began in 1968 as a soup kitchen run in the city’s Castlegate. Organised by students from Aberdeen University, this service provided basic food to a growing number of people. It became increasingly obvious that there was a high demand for further support services and eventually a night shelter was opened.
Over the next four decades Aberdeen Cyrenians opened the first ever wet hostel in Britain, the first Women’s hostel in Aberdeen, day centres, emergency accommodation for young people, medium-term accommodation for young and old, community & housing support services and an employment and education service. An estimated 50,000 homeless people or people at risk of homelessness have been supported by Aberdeen Cyrenians over the past 48 years.
All donations are hugely appreciated!!!

MacMillan Cancer Support
MacMillan is a source of support, helping with all the things that people affected by cancer want and need. It’s not only patients who live with cancer, they also help carers, families and communities.
They fund nurses and other specialist health care professionals and build cancer care centres. They give so much more than medical help.
