Theatre Modo was one of four charities to receive a donation from Aberdeen Foyer Employability Fund Christmas Group recently.

The group delivered in partnership with SDS an eight-week course designed to increase participants confidence, raise self esteem and gain nationally recognised qualifications with which to enhance their CVs.

Over the course of the eight weeks the group was responsible for planning, creating and delivering an elves workshop based in Saltoun Square in Fraserburgh.

The two-day event managed to raise a fantastic total of £278 which was distributed to charities close to the team’s heart.
