MEMBER NEWS: FG Burnett raise £3400 for UCAN

FG Burnett continue with their support of UCAN, choosing the north east’s urological cancer charity as their nominated charity for 2023. So far this year, the Aberdeen based commercial property company organised a number of fundraising events including a Quiz Night at Aberdeenshire Cricket Club and a Wimbledon themed bake sale. In addition, some of the FGB team took part in the Aberdeen Kiltwalk in June. The company was delighted to present Gayle Stephen of UCAN with a cheque for £3400.

UCAN has aimed to improve support for those affected by urological cancers, developing an array of services. Key among these services is a dedicated UCAN Cancer Care Centre co-located within the Urology ward 209 at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and offering access to various information tools and materials, as well as advice from experienced urological cancer specialist nursing staff.

Other services include an online information site and a one-to-one peer support network matching newly diagnosed patients with ‘buddy-advisors’ who experienced a similar diagnosis. Another key activity of UCAN is raising awareness of the urological cancers through health promotion in the community as a way of encouraging early presentation when symptoms begin.

Richard Noble, Managing Director at FG Burnett commented: “UCAN plays a vital role supporting those affected by urological cancers and we had no hesitation in continuing to support them as our nominated charity of the year for 2023. I would like to thank the whole FGB team for all their fundraising efforts so far and look forward to continuing this throughout the rest of the year.”

Justine Royle, Chair of UCAN and Consultant Urological Surgeon said: “We are extremely grateful of the support of everyone at FG Burnett, all funds raised will be used locally to support patients and their families who have had a urological cancer diagnosis.”

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
