The Scottish carrier Loganair has achieved a significant fundraising milestone of £35,000 that has been donated to the airlines charity partner, Children’s Hospice’s Across Scotland (CHAS).

“It is evident from the significant fundraising total how committed Loganair employees are to our charity partner and their recognition of the value and impact CHAS services have on families across Scotland,” said Luke Farajallah, Chief Executive Officer at Loganair.

“Through their ongoing fundraising efforts, volunteering, and advocacy we have built a beneficial partnership for both Loganair and CHAS and I am thrilled we can celebrate this significant milestone of £35,000.”

Alongside holding ‘hanger open days’ and providing sponsored flights around the UK, the airline is adding a voluntary £2 option to all tickets purchased through its official website.  Loganair expects to more than double its fundraising through this new initiative.

“It’s been incredible working in partnership with Loganair over these last few years. Their in-kind support has enabled us to provide vital respite to families in remote areas of Scotland,” said Lara MacDonald, Senior Corporate Partnerships Executive at CHAS.

“The funds raised will have a significant impact on so many children and families across the country. Thank you Loganair for your continued support.”

Farajallah added, “The potential to match our fundraising total to date in just one year, where we hope projected £2 donations could amount to around £30,000 annually, is very exciting – I have no doubt Loganair customers will embrace this opportunity to positively impact the lives of those who require the vital CHAS services in Scotland.”
