Scenting some Christmas cheer to Perthshire Women’s Aid

Amery Construction sniffed out an opportunity to brighten up a local charity’s Christmas with a donation of 73 pamper packs.

Perthshire Women’s Aid received the gifted packs of bath oils, soaps and

aromatherapy and relaxation treatments through their partnership with the Cross Tay Link Road (CTLR) project.

As one of the key sub-contractor on the project, Amery is carrying out the majority of the earthworks and ground preparation on site.

Louise Craig is the charity manager which helps Perthshire women, children and young people, who are experiencing, or have experienced, domestic abuse.

‘This is a fantastic donation; due to the current climate, we have struggled to obtain our normal levels of gifts being handed in this year. These packs will go a long way to brightening up Christmas in many homes that may be feeling the pinch this year,’ said Louise.

The CTLR project involves constructing a 3-span bridge over the River Tay and six kilometres of a new road linking the A9 and the A93 to Blairgowrie and the A94 north of Scone. It also includes the realignment of two kilometres of dual carriageway on the A9 just north of Inveralmond Roundabout.

The new road will significantly reduce traffic congestion and related pollution in Perth’s City centre while opening up active travel opportunities and will give access to areas around the city for sustainable development. It is the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken by Perth & Kinross Council.

Amery’s Commercial Director, David Boyce, said:

‘We were delighted to donate to Perthshire Women’s Aid; we know how hard they work to improve the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in society; we wanted to pass on our appreciation and acknowledgement of this.’

The donation was made through the CTLR project’s community benefits programme, which aims to deliver environmental, training and social value projects related to the main construction.
