Dräger spread festive cheer again this year by sponsoring and attending an annual Christmas charity conference – which it has done for the last three years.

Scores of workers from the oil and gas industry were among more than 1,000 people who attended the community concert at The Music Hall in Aberdeen on Sunday.

Among them were staff from Dräger, which has a dedicated site in Aberdeen and offers specialist safety training, repair workshop facilities and a base for customers to hire, purchase and maintain Dräger products.

It’s the third year that Dräger has sponsored the annual event, organised by CLIC Sargent, a leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families.

Holly Taylor, Fundraising Manager, North East Scotland and Shetland, for CLIC Sargent, said, “We are delighted to have the support of Apache and Dräger at our carol concert this year.”

“The concert is an excellent, fun event while also helping us raise vital funds for children and young people with cancer in the North East.”

The NHS Grampian Choir joined the local community to get everyone in the festive mood with a mix of carols sung by the choir and Christmas favourites for the audience to sing along with.

All proceeds raised at the event were donated to support the work of CLIC Sargent.

Phil Saxton, General Manager of Dräger Marine and Offshore UK, said, “There was a great turnout from oil and gas companies for the carol concert, which is now a Dräger tradition.”

“The concert is always a special ocassion which continues to be supported by Dräger. It was great to see so many people enjoy themselves ahead of Christmas at an event which also raises much-needed cash for charity.”
