Shell St Fergus has donated £10,000 to local charities in the North East in a programme linked to safety performance at the site throughout the year.

The money was raised after staff at the gas plant successfully completed 364 days in 2014 without any safety incidents.

Throughout the year, for every month in which there was no safety incidents, a donation was made by the company to Shell’s charity fund.

At the end of the year, Shell staff made the decision which charities would be receiving the donation.

Shell’s St Fergus Gas Plant Manager, Steve Morrice, said: “Safety is Shell’s number one priority.

“In 2014, Shell’s St Fergus gas plant achieved 364 days where no recordable injuries were reported.

“We will strive to continue our impressive safety record in 2015, and generate even more money for local charities.”

Mr Morrice and Andrew Fyfe, an Onshore Asset Manager for Shell, presented the donations to Give Kids A Chance, Anna Ritchie Parent Council, The Multiple Sclerosis Society, Kidney Kids Scotland, Willows Animal Sanctuary, Halfpenny Farm, Archie Foundation and the VSA Fraserburgh Carers Centre each with a £1,250 donation at Shell’s annual “Day Out For Safety.”
