Charity wing of car dealership Peter Vardy moves to prestigious Edinburgh thoroughfare
The Vardy Foundation will be relocating to an office complex on the third floor of a listed townhouse at 110 George Street in the city center.
The foundation signed a five-year lease on the 1,445-square-foot suite, which will be occupied by a team of six employees.
Richard Vardy, administrator of the charity, said: “We wanted to find a suitable base for our growing team, so that we can continue to develop the work of the Vardy Foundation.
“My father, Sir Peter, moved to Scotland and the association’s headquarters are now in Edinburgh.
“Our newly acquired office on George Street is ideal – it is finished to a high standard and is accessible to professional, commercial and retail sectors. We are delighted to be here and will no doubt be very happy in our new location.
Howard Crawshaw, Managing Director of Knight Property Group, added: “We continue to see increasing levels of interest in the Edinburgh office market for prime city center spaces and are confident of a strong recovery, as we begin to step out of the restrictions of the pandemic.
“The Vardy Foundation is a great addition to the mix of occupants in this building.”
The Vardy Foundation was created to distribute 10% of the profits of the family car dealership, in order to support projects that improve the lives of vulnerable children and young people locally and abroad, through support, education and care.
