Construction firm chips in to help kids at Christmas


City Building has presented two vital charities with £10,000 each ahead of the festive season.

Cash for Kids and Kidney Research UK at Glasgow City Chambers following a charity golf day jointly organised by City Building and the Glasgow Lord Provost’s and International Office.

Clyde 1 DJ Grant Thomson accepted the donation Glasgow City Chambers on behalf of Radio Clyde’s Cash for Kids’ Mission Christmas campaign, which is aimed at making Christmas Day better for thousands of vulnerable children in the west of Scotland. The cash will be used to provide more than 400 children with either a hot meal, clothes or a gift.

Graham Paterson, executive director of City Building said,  “We are pleased and proud alongside the Lord Provost to present these £10,000 donations to Cash for Kids and Kidney Research UK. At this time of year when we are all looking forward to Christmas it is great to be able to give something back to good causes like these. It is particularly poignant that £10,000 of the money raised will be used to improve the festive season for more than 400 children across the city.

“I’d like to thank all our team and supply chain as well as the Lord Provost’s Office for their generosity which has enabled us to hand over such an impressive donation today.”
