Watermans Solicitors have launched a joint initiative with Scotland Charity Air Ambulance, creating a donation programme which will provide ongoing support to both SCAA and Scotland’s motorcycle community.
For every successful motorbike personal injury compensation claims that Watermans pursue on behalf of someone who has been injured while out on their bike, the legal firm will make a donation to SCAA.
Watermans have been active supporters of the airborne charity since 2017, helping SCAA carry out its life-saving work and vital service across Scotland. The legal firm sponsor Scotty, the charity’s eight-foot paramedic mascot, while a recently announced two-year speaker programme partnership will see the firm back the charity’s growing nationwide calendar of talks and presentations to groups and organisations right across Scotland.
Nick Harvey, Director of Fundraising and Communications at SCAA, said: “We are extremely appreciative of companies who support SCAA’s vital life-saving work and Watermans’ partnership is a prime example of that initiative in action.
“As Scotland’s only air ambulance charity, we rely solely on donations and therefore, we also appreciate the gesture of the donation programme which will further help our cause.
Scott Whyte, Managing Director of Watermans Solicitors said: “This partnership means we will be able to support both SCAA’s vital work and Scotland’s motorcycle community on an ongoing basis.
For those who are injured on Scotland’s roads while out on a motorcycle, SCAA can be quite literally a life-saving service.
“At Watermans, we work to put things right for injured people. We know the difference SCAA has made to many of the people we represent so this partnership is a very natural one for us.”
Watermans has a long-established history of partnerships with charity organisations and community groups. They are long-time sponsors of Lochend Boxing Club in Edinburgh and the TCCL Lodge in St Andrews, which provides families affected by childhood cancer and leukaemia.
