Excellent safety standards during ExxonMobil’s recent £140m plant upgrade at Mossmorran, Fife, have raised £15,000 for three charities. Sullivan’s Heroes was one of these three fortunate charities to benefit – with the funds generously donated supporting local Fife resident Keira.
The ExxonMobil safety scheme saw tokens presented to workers who demonstrated positive safety behaviour and interactions. They then donated these tokens to the charities which were converted into cash and topped up with a corporate donation from Fife Ethylene Plant.
Keira’s project has seen the family busy fundraising towards the £65,000 shortfall needed to meet the costs above the Disabled Facilities Grant awarded for Keira’s adaptations project.
As Keira grows older it is getting harder to get up and down the stairs whilst carrying her, aside from the dangers involved in carrying a recently turned 14-year-old. Having her own space downstairs will greatly benefit all the family and a new personal space for Keira will bring so many positive changes for the teenager.
The adaptations, which have recently got underway, will provide a new ground floor bedroom, wetroom and improved living space to secure independent living for Keira once she reaches adulthood, together with a place where carers supporting Keira's needs will have all the necessary essentials to meet her care requirements.
The generous donation from ExxonMobil will be used towards a new communication device for Keira – enabling her to control elements of lights, music and TV in her new room, and helping her independence to grow, amongst other benefits.
Our thanks to everyone involved in donating these vital funds towards Keira’s new space – which are greatly appreciated and will make a positive and lasting difference to Keira’s life.
