BIG-hearted employees and management at Edinburgh-based building services company M-Pact have donated a bounty of gifts for vulnerable Lothian families.
The company’s 65 staff, including managers, office staff, site staff and apprentices, have donated the gifts to charity partner Women’s Aid East and Mid Lothian.
Each of the 26 key workers at Women’s Aid will identify five of the most vulnerable families on their client lists and unwrap an unexpected Christmas bonus for them, courtesy of the M-PACT staff’s generosity.
Yvonne Irvine, of Women’s Aid East and Mid Lothian said, “Our thanks go out to everyone at M-PACT for thinking of other people at this time of year and putting so much effort into their charity initiatives.
“This will bring a big smile to a lot of faces in the local area who otherwise might have had a much less festive season.”
Claire Wright, Director at M-PACT commented, “Our staff are amazing. Their support and donations speak volumes and it makes us feel very proud to know the type of kind-hearted employees we have.
“We chose Women’s Aid because we knew our donations would make a real difference. We are a family-run business and we know how important family is. It is heartbreaking to think of the women and children who are in a less fortunate position at this time.”
