Zoe says “thank you” with fund raising trek across Cuba

Home news

Zoe Spalding, administrator at Mowat Court, decided to give something back to the charity that helped her return to work, by trekking across Cuba.

She raised money for Aberdeen Foyer, a local charity that supports homeless and disadvantaged young people.

Zoe, who is a single parent, was helped by the Working for Families aspect of Aberdeen Foyer to return to work after the birth of her child.

She said: “I was determined to work and not sit around on benefits. Working for Families helped me in a number of ways, including providing vouchers for new clothes for job interviews and with financial support towards the initial costs of childcare. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.”

Speaking of her role at Mowat Court  she said:  “It’s a great job.  It’s the first time I have worked in a nursing home, and I work with a lot of good people. It’s very fulfilling.”

Zoe’s trek across Cuba started on October 17th. Karren Cryle, manager at Mowat Court, commented: “We are all really proud of Zoe and her commitment to raise funds for the charity which has given her so much help. She has our full support for her venture.”
