Amiqus Reaches Fundraising Milestone, Donating £35,000 Towards £100,000 Goal for the Scottish Refugee Council

Scottish fintech Amiqus, has celebrated a major achievement in its partnership with the Scottish Refugee Council (SRC). The firm recently contributed £35,000 from its initial fundraising efforts of 2023, moving towards its ambitious target of raising over £100,000 in a three-year campaign from 2023 to 2025.

Callum Murray, the founding CEO of Amiqus, expressed pride in the company's collaboration with the SRC, emphasising the importance of the partnership:

"We're now one year into our partnership with the Scottish Refugee Council, supporting the vital work they do across the country. Their front-line support services provide help and direction for people as they move from a position of danger and desperation to a safe place they can settle, call home and rebuild their lives, integrated with local communities. Working together with a shared purpose, we're developing the means to make sure Amiqus enables access to legal help, financial services and pathways into employment for people who need it most. Speaking on behalf of our board and everyone at Amiqus, we're committed to playing our part for the long run and making an outsized impact on the SRC's long-term objectives as we continue to sustainably scale Amiqus as one of the fastest-growing tech businesses in the UK."

Now in the second year of their partnership, Amiqus has stepped up its fundraising activities. Notably, they sponsored the SRC Spring Ceilidh in Glasgow this April, which successfully raised over £9,000. Additionally, for the second year running, the Amiqus team will participate in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival on 25th May 2024, collectively covering over 100 miles in support of the SRC.

Amiqus invites individuals and organisations to join them in supporting the SRC's vital work. Contributions can be made via the Amiqus JustGiving page.

Dr Sabir Zazai, Chief Executive of the Scottish Refugee Council, highlighted the significance of their collaboration: "

We are honoured to work in partnership with Amiqus who have passionately been supporting our work for over a year now. Through supporting our Leadership programme with laptops, completing marathons, to sponsoring our fundraising events, Amiqus have been instrumental in helping us achieve our aims. We have a great relationship with the team, and we are already looking forward to working with Amiqus on their future fundraising and their upcoming initiatives which will support people as they seek to make a new life for themselves in Scotland."
