Wood is a global leader in the delivery of project, engineering and technical services in energy and the built environment, employing more than 40,000 people in over 40 countries. Its values of care, commitment and courage are embedded in its business and define who they are, how they work, what they believe in and what they stand for. Being socially responsible is integral to what they do. Wood aims to make a positive difference to the communities in which it operates and seeks ways to assist them by building relationships based on respect, understanding and empowerment.
It helps local communities by supporting health, welfare, education and humanitarian relief. Each year employees can apply for matched funding to support worthy charities and community groups. Wood employees also give their time and fund-raise for local charities that provide critical local support.
Wood has a long history of helping local charities in Aberdeen, particularly those helping homeless and disadvantaged people in the city, including Aberdeen Cyrenians, Cornerstone and Instant Neighbour. Its employees in Aberdeen have helped the company to raise thousands of pounds over the years for the Maggie’s Centre in Aberdeen and Aberdeen Children’s Hospital, with hundreds volunteering to create the hospital garden and make improvements to the hospital.
Wood is very proud of the help its employees provide to local communities; their people genuinely care about others - not because they work for Wood, but because Wood has great people.
The first Campbells butcher shop opened in Edinburgh in 1910 with a strong focus to provide premium quality butchered meat and this value still stands strong at the company’s heart. Since then the company has developed to supply hundreds of restaurants, colleges and universities across the UK, working closely with high profile chefs including the majority of Michelin-starred restaurants in Scotland together with the chefs of the future.
To this day, Campbells Prime Meat dry age their beef for at least 21 days, improving the flavour and texture of the meat. They proudly continue to butcher their meat in the traditional way, never on a production line. This makes a big difference to the quality and the taste remains consistently good every time.
Being a Scottish company is a great advantage to Campbells. It helps us to produce the highest quality meat, because Scottish farmers rear great animals, predominantly grass fed and based on less intensive agriculture systems than elsewhere in Europe. Our fresh fish is just that – fresh. We source all of our fish daily from Scrabster, Peterhead and Shetland. We buy fish at the quayside from boats fishing in the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, assuring our customers of the freshest, Scottish landed fish.
We endeavour to source locally as much as possible to support the Scottish economy and work closely with chefs to develop seasonal delicacies and encourage food innovation.

It is the kind of local wine merchant everyone should have: a friendly presence, terrific wines, and great personal service.” Anthony Rose - The Daily Record

Although it might sound as if the Ballater Gallery in Aberdeenshire, Scotland has been around for a long time it hasn't, and actually only started trading in June 2019. This was the dream of well-known Scottish businessman and keen art collector David Reid and it came about after years of planning and research.
David has worked throughout the country but, after giving up corporate life and returning to his roots in the North East in 2012, his knowledge of art specifically helped the charities which he has supported. David ran two hugely successful art sales for Maggies at the Chester Hotel in Aberdeen and spent hundreds of hours with more than 40 mainly Scottish artists.
