Aramark Family Fun Day

The Denis Law Legacy Trust’s Streetsport programme and sponsors Aramark are staging a family fun day in Aberdeen city centre tomorrow afternoon (September 20th 2018) to highlight the remarkable work carried out by the charity and celebrate Aramark’s Building Community Day (ABC Day).

With a cooking demonstration, lessons on how to eat healthily on a budget and a street-food van offering Mexican wraps, it's expected the event will attract hundreds of people to the Cruyff Court Denis Law and the Catherine Street Community Centre, off George Street in the city centre.

There will be two sessions - from four o'clock to 6pm and from 7pm to 9pm - and will included a football competition as well as a quiz.

The Streetsport programme delivers free weekly sports and creative activity sessions for young people across Aberdeen and, with the help of a large number of volunteers, is active in areas of high youth annoyance, as identified by Aberdeen City's Community Safety Hub.

The fun-day is backed by Aramark, the customer service business which operates across food, facilities and uniforms in 19 countries and the company will present the Denis Law Legacy Trust with a cheque for £3500 to help boost their work.

ABC Day is a celebration of Aramark’s year-round efforts to enrich and nourish lives in their communities.

This year, the theme for ABC Day is “We Care. We Give. We Do.” Aramark’s goal is to empower, support and celebrate healthy living around the world by inspiring families to lead healthier lifestyles and by helping youth and adults achieve life-long success through education and employment. The theme honours five years of ABC Day as well as a decade of Aramark’s year-round community impact.

Mark Williams, chief executive of the Denis Law Legacy Trust, said: "Without support from a wide range of companies and organisations like Aramark, we would be unable to continue the work we do in communities throughout Aberdeen."

Deborah Burnside of Aramark Northern Europe said “We are honoured to be part of such a meaningful programme to help young people in the Granite City. The kind of work Denis Law Streetsport does plays-in to the ethos and integrity of Aramark. “
