EIGHT local charities have received donations from EnQuest on behalf of the owners of Sullom Voe Terminal (SVT).

Two charities, Shetland Women’s Aid and NHS Endowment Macmillan/Oncology received £1,000 donations.

CLAN Cancer Support were awarded £600, as were Ability Shetland and a defibrillator appeal for Urafirth Primary School.

Grants worth £500 were given to the Shetland Care Attendant Scheme and the Yell health support group.

Friends of Anchor – Aberdeen, Orkney and Shetland also received a donation of £500.

Shetland care centres received a donation of £250 each.

The charities were nominated by terminal employees to receive an award from SVT’s safety incentive Scheme.

These awards are made possible through the efforts of EnQuest and contracting staff at the terminal achieving 30 perfect days without any recordable injuries, high potential incidents, spills to sea, smoky flares or hydrocarbon leaks and 100 pet cent availability.
