The Dundee-based company will give a total of £8,000 to The Ocean Cleanup, Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK), and Dundee Bairns. Ace Aquatec’s staff vote annually to choose which charities the company will support.
The Ocean Cleanup is a Dutch non-profit organisation that aims to remove 90% of polluting plastics from the sea by 2040.
ARUK is working to find a cure for dementia-causing diseases, and local charity Dundee Bairns supports children living in poverty by providing regular hot and nutritious meals during school holidays in a safe environment.
Ace Aquatec chief executive Nathan Pyne-Carter said: “Now more than ever, the third sector is amongst the hardest being hit by the Covid pandemic.
“Each of our chosen charities has a close connection to our team members and our business values. It’s so important that we continue supporting the initiatives that are making a real difference in our industry and communities.
“The partnerships benefit all parties through education, sustainability, research and new projects. We hope our support will help strengthen the resilience of these great organisations.”
