Outdoor Activities

Spending time outdoors in the natural world and providing children with the opportunity to ‘unplug’ has never been as important as it is now.  Connecting with the world around us and a break from the pressures of everyday life supports our mental wellbeing and enables us to ground ourselves in inspiring natural surroundings.  Making time to interact with peers and role models outside the home and school environment presents a variety of benefits to young people.

Having donated £58m, it has helped fund projects for many schools and charitable organisations across West Berkshire and North Hampshire, including The Rosemary Appeal, Brighter Futures, Parenting Special Children, Parkinson’s, MS Therapy and many more.

As the first academic year of PeterDeen reaches a conclusion, Aberdeenshire’s Head of Education Vincent Docherty and his brother Tony, assistant manager at Aberdeen Football Club (AFC), are getting together with Steven Sweeney from AFC’s Community Trust to congratulate scholars and look to the future.
