Supporting our chapter’s charity!

Three of our chapter members are taking on the #Run100Raise100 challenge for our charity @supportCHAS – they’ve been challenged to cover 100km in any way they like and raise a minimum of £100 for CHAS.

A huge well done to Karen Arthur, Laura Walker and Irene McRae for taking this on and raising lots of money for such a worthy cause.

If you’d like to donate to their challenges, click on their name and donate to the Facebook Fundraiser on their page.

These much needed funds will help CHAS to continue reaching children with life-shortening conditions across Scotland. CHAS provides Scotland’s only hospice services for babies, children and young people with a terminal illness through Rachel House, Robin House, CHAS at Home and hospital visits.

Member Highlight: Emma Moore of Children's Hospices Across Scotland

Children's Hospices Across Scotland, better known as CHAS, is Scotland's only hospice service for babies, children and young people living with a life shortening condition.

We do this through our 2 hospices - Rachel House in Kinross, and Robin House in Balloch - as well as through our CHAS at home services, one of which is based here in Aberdeen.

The local team work with over 50 families across Grampian in their own homes, in hospital and out in their communities.

Because of the current pandemic situation, we are predicting a 40% loss of income, which is a huge blow to the organisation. However, we will continue to provide the specialist paediatric palliative care that sets us, while ensuring that we also provide joy to the children's lives, no matter how short they may be.

Testimonials

  • You have been our Brand Guardian since 2006. Since then we have had, amongst other things, a digital revolution. LFI has never been found wanting at any stage of digital evolution and has always been a step ahead when it comes to our website and social media footprint. There is no other company I would trust with FMA’ s image.

    ALAN MOIR TO RICHARD CAIRNEY
  • I would like to thank you and the team at Balfour Manson for the legal advice and services you supplied for both myself and my clients.
    I have used your Employment Department on two separate occasions and the team led by Robert Holland have shown both professionalism and compassion in both situations. They led both myself and my clients through the process, explaining each step as we went. The advice received gave my clients and myself, clear informed choices which made the decisions much easier to make – so thank you.
    I will continue to highly recommend Balfour Manson for all legal services to my clients, family, friends and colleagues.

    KAREN ARTHUR TO JULIE CLARK-SPENCE
  • I wanted to extend thanks and gratitude on behalf of Simply Clean Aberdeen for the great service you and your team have provided during the build of our new website.

    From conception to completion, LFI have guided us through the process effortlessly, offering advice and technical support, but at the same time allowing us the flexibility to put our own personal stamp on the website.

    I think you will agree that the finished product looks great. The correct marketing of Simply Clean Aberdeen is of the utmost importance to us as a business and a key milestone in our company’s rebranding strategy.

    I would highly recommend LFI’s services. In our dealings with Richard and the team they have always been very responsive and flexible to meet our needs – and most importantly they get the job done.

    Thank you once again to the team at LFI.

    DUSTIN FALZON TO RICHARD CAIRNEY
  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank Alan at his team @ FMA for their continued help and support.
    This is our 15 year of trading and FMA have pretty much been by our side every step of the way as our accountants and more importantly as our trusted business advisers.

    As with most business there are up and downs, and right now we are in uncharted territory. A third of our staff are currently on furlough and to date we have received approx. 11K of furlough grant from HMRC and the only thing I have had to do is tell Alan and his team the employees who are furloughed and the dates they were furloughed, all the calculations and application for furlough have been taken care of by FMA.

    This is a very stressful time for all businesses with a number of things to think about and take care of so I am very grateful that FMA have taken this one and very important tasks off of my to do list.

    Thanks again to you and your team Alan.

    STEVE BRAND TO ALAN MOIR
  • I would like to thank you for the great and informative service you and your team gave our company SKA Property Developments.

    I will continue to highly recommend Fyfe Moir & Associates to all of my family, friends and colleagues for all accounting and business support needs.

    KAREN ARTHUR TO ALAN MOIR
  • I would like to thank you for the prompt and fantastic job you did in successfully letting 2 properties from 2 referral’s which I passed to you, for my husband Steve Arthur.
    The 2 individual tenants moved into the properties a few months ago and since then you have kept us updated with any maintenance or tenant needs, which you have dealt with. You have made the process of letting our properties very easy, so thank you.
    I will continue to highly recommend Grant Fairbairn Leasing to all of my family, friends and colleagues for any property letting needs.

    Karen Arthur to Grant Fairbairn

  • Dear Alan,

    We would like to thank Alan and his team at Fyfe Moir for the help given through Covid19. They have been completely on the ball with the most up to date information regarding claiming from HMRC and what we need to do for our business in these uncertain times.

    Their help has been invaluable and as always they are just at the end of the phone which makes things a lot easier.

    Many thanks

    Richard Cairney to Alan Moir
  • I am writing to thank you for the terrific advice and assistance with a leak through my garage roof.

    Having tried a few different ideas myself to no avail your team sorted out what took me several attempts in a morning.

    This is the third job that FM Has completed for me and a such I have no hesitation at all and am more than happy to recommend FM Construction to anyone.

    Thanks for your help Stuart.

    Tony Tortalano to Stuart Fraser
  • I would like to thank Karen very much, for her professional guidance, advice and support in restructuring my business, over the month of April 2020. Karen gave me her time at a very uncertain time for business. A time, I’m sure, was equally difficult for her business also.

    The advice I have received form Karen in recent weeks has been, undoubtedly, a key factor in my business continuing to trade.

    Thank you Karen, for all your advice and support. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Karen’s thoughtful and individual coaching to any business, new or existing, to keep focus on your end goal.

    Laura Walker to Karen Arthur
  • I am writing to thank LFI for the immediate assistance when it was discussed during a 1-2-1 I was looking to promote the new Legislation regarding Smoke and Heat detection requirements for Private homes and not just rental property.

    Unknown to me LFI then came back to me a few days later with a really professional flyer for approval.
    This was done on their own accord which is an amazing effort .

    I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending LFI to anyone whether for a business card a complete Wed design or Social media or for just for some simple professional advice .

    Thank you very much for all your help.

    Tony Tortolano to Richard Cairney
  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank Irene McRae of Serenity for the countless times that she has sorted out my back and neck with her terrific massage therapy.

    Irene is very knowledgeable in her field and has always managed to get me sorted!

    I am delighted with the service that Irene provides and I would have no hesitation in recommending Irene’s services to anyone with aches and pains.

    Steve Brand to Irene McRae
  • On behalf of Cito Cimo group, I would like to thank your and your team at Simply Clean for a professional clean you have done for us on many occasions, whether it was after tenants or after builders clean.

    Especially, I would like to thank you for the regular cleaning of our HMO which is being occupied by key workers and we have been let down by the previous cleaner at the start of pandemic.

    Your team is professional, efficient and a pleasure to work with. We do not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone who needs professional cleaning.

    Elahe Radmaneshfar to Dustin Falzon
  • I was involved in an accident last November which resulted in a jarred right leg, whiplash injury and lower back pain. I attended 6 sessions of Physio which were beneficial for my neck and back but didn’t fix my leg problem completely. I felt as though I just always wanted to stretch out my leg but it was too painful to do so.

    I came to see you 5 weeks ago as I was having a severe problem with my right leg.

    You took the time to do a full assessment and I came away with a programme to help with building and stretching my hip flexor. Because of the current Lockdown situation we have had to discuss my progress online.

    You have continued to support me by sending videos to help me continue make progress.

    You have a wealth of knowledge and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any of my own clients who require a rehab programme.

    Irene McRae to Laura Walker
  • I would like to thank Bev very much, for supplying me with a birthday treat for a member of my family, with no ordering or warning, from me. I happened to see Bev and explain my predicament. She calmly and professionaly offered me Strawberry tars, to celebrate my husbands birtdhay, there and then.

    Thank you, Bev, for all your professionalism and beautiful food. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Bev’s Bistro for great quality food and helping her clients in any situation.

    Thank you

    Laura Walker to Bev Lee
