Aberdeen business owner to abseil down Children’s Hospital to raise funds for cancer charity

Owner of Clarity Simplicity Ltd is preparing to abseil down Aberdeen’s Children Hospital to raise money for Team Jak Foundation – a charity that provides practical, social, and emotional support to children and young people with cancer

Aberdeen business, Clarity Simplicity Ltd is sharing the ropes with Team Jak Foundation to abseil down the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital this summer.

Owner of Clarity Simplicity Ltd currently works alongside Team Jak Foundation to help make lives better for children battling cancer.

The charity abseil will take place on Saturday, July 9 and all money raised will go to support local children and their families in the North-east of Scotland.

Team Jak was created at the request of inspirational teenager Jak Trueman following his journey with childhood cancer.

Inspired by Jak’s dreams, the charity provides practical, social, and emotional support to children and young people with cancer and related illnesses, their family, friends and those bereaved.

The charity, established in 2015 and based in Livingston, has been supporting oncology families in Aberdeen for the last four years and is currently looking for premises in Aberdeen to expand support.

Billy Smith, owner of Clarity Simplicity Ltd said: “Earlier this year my business (Clarity Simplicity Ltd) sought to find a charity partner that we believed we could work with not just through this year, but hopefully for many years to come.

“We then spoke to a number of charities but time and again Team Jak, their facilities, their reason and their downright desire to make the best lives for their kids possible, rose to the top.

“Since then we have volunteered, we have walked the Glasgow Kilt Walk and now we are flinging ourselves off a very high building (Aberdeen Children’s Hospital) all in aid of making lives better for children.

“I ask that you support me with whatever you can. Thanks.”
