As a proud local business, we endeavour to assist some local charities at various times of the year.
Whilst it’s impossible to support every charity we would like, we do try and identify charities that mean a lot to our workforce, our staff, our clients and suppliers.
So far in 2018 we have supported the following charities
2017 Charity Fundraising
So, after a period of discussion, for the winter of 2017 we decided to support the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity (formerly Yorkhill Royal Hospital for Sick Children) and as such we tried to raise as much money as possible for this very worthwhile local cause, including complete the Santa Dash in Glasgow in temperatures of minus 4.
And on Wednesday 7th February 2018 we were delighted to present a cheque to the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity for a grand total of £2,130.25
Previous charities we have supported.

These services together with our national programme work in See Me, respectme, suicide prevention, sport and physical activity; inform our policy and campaign work to influence positive social change.
National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) – each of us has a responsibility to keep childhood free from abuse, and we must do everything possible to protect children and prevent it from happening. So if a law needs to change, or if more needs to be done to protect children, we demand it. The fact that we’re independent – relying on the public to fund our work – means we can push for change when others can’t.
Poppy Scotland provides life-changing support to our Armed Forces community. We reach out to those who have served, those still serving, and their families at times of crisis and need by offering vital, practical advice, assistance and funding. We believe that those who serve or have served, whether regular or reserve, are deserving of our support to live life fully without disadvantage after service. No veteran should live without the prospect of employment, good health and a home, and we all have a part to play in achieving this.
