Board Members

Adam Findlay – Chairman

Adam Findlay is a Scottish based entrepreneur whose interests mostly centre around broadcasting and web casting based businesses.  Adam was once the proprietor of the station now known as WAVE FM and one of the founding trustees of Help for Kids.  Adam is also the director of Original 106 Aberdeen, Media Investments Ltd, Adjem Ltd and international shipping company, Ecosse Marine.

“As I was going about the day to day business of running the station it became very apparent that there was a gap in the support network trying to target the poverty and severely disadvantaged children in Dundee & Perth.  Help for Kids aims to plug that gap targeting both groups and individuals who fall between the “funding gaps” of local or national support systems.  Our Trustees all have strong local connections with the area and are uniquely placed to recognise the local needs and reach out to those most in need”.

Laura McDowall – Trustee

Laura is a Private Client Partner in local law firm Blackadders.  She deals with Wills, Trusts, Taxation, Charities, Executry Estates and Adults with Incapacity including Power of Attorney, Guardianship Orders and Financial Management.  Both her legal experience and the support of her firm Blackadders is invaluable to Help for Kids.

Laura was born in Dundee, attending Ancrum Road Primary School, Harris Academy and Dundee University; for both her undergraduate degree and postgraduate diploma.  Laura stays local and is very passionate about the city.  Having grown up in Dundee Laura has witnessed firsthand the devasting effects that poverty and deprivation have on local children.

“Laura joined the Help for Kids board in 2012 with the aim of helping as many local disadvantaged children as possible”.
