About this fund

The Peter Vardy Foundation was created as a way of distributing 10% of the profits from Peter Vardy Limited to good causes. It exists to improve the lives of vulnerable children and young people both locally and abroad.

The Foundation believes that “Every Life is Worthy” and that every child should have a safe and secure childhood and so makes grants to charities and other non-profit organisations that support children and young people who are disadvantaged and face challenges in their lives.

The Foundation works together with these organisations to see lives and communities transformed through support, education and care.

In Scotland each of the Peter Vardy Motor retail businesses has a community champion and supports children’s charity partners located close to their operating sites in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, Kirkcaldy, Motherwell and Dalgety Bay.

When to apply?
Contact the community champion at your local store. They may be fully committed.
