Over the next year the two companies, owned by Scott and Sarah Raeburn, are planning to undertake a number of live and virtual fundraising events involving the staff and their families to support the work of Hearts & Minds and the Clowndoctors & Elderflowers. Their first breath-taking challenge is going to be an adrenalin packed 40m bungee jump off a bridge in Killiecrankie, Perthshire!
Raeburn Construction has been operating since May 2006 is based in Kirkcaldy and operates mainly in Edinburgh and Fife providing a groundwork civil engineering service to main contractors besides working with housebuilders and developers fulfilling full build projects.
Raeburn Training was launched in August 2019 is also based in Kirkcaldy and provides Health and Safety training across all industry types and also specialises in construction safety training. Clients include companies, candidates and the employability sectors, assisting candidates gain essential skills to gain employment, a very rewarding part of our business.
Both companies are operated with a family feel and aim to provide a good place for employees to work and be part of a growing successful company. This is why the work of the charity felt like the perfect fit to work together over the next year.
Scott and Sarah Raeburn, Directors said: We have heard a lot about Hearts & Minds and appreciate the challenges of continuing charity work at this time. Both Sarah and I have a friend whose daughter has experienced first hand the joy of a visit from the clowns whilst at the Sick Kids Hospital, Edinburgh and she spoke very highly of the difference it made to her daughter’s day. The simplicity of making someone smile or laugh everyday was inspiring.
Rebecca Simpson, CEO Hearts & Minds commented: Hearts & Minds is absolutely delighted to be chosen by Raeburn Construction and Raeburn Training, it is a tough time for charities and even more so for the people we connect with in hospitals, hospices, and care homes. This support is invaluable and will help us reach more people through our Clowndoctor and Elderflower programmes. We look forward to developing our relationship with the Raeburn team and we are excited about working with them on their fundraising campaigns.
