MORRISON Construction employees have helped raise more than £4,000 for the charity Nansen Highland following a fundraising drive.
The Black Isle-based charity provides services and support to young people with learning difficulties including specialised training, accommodation and housing support services.
Morrison staff presented the charity with a cheque for £4,226.14, raised via a number of events including a family fun day, quiz night, bake sales and car washes.
Bart Lafere, director of Nansen Highland said, “We’re grateful for this donation, which is helping our staff and volunteers in their efforts to make everything they do possible. It’s an amazing sum of money that Morrison Construction has raised and we really can’t thank them enough. We plan to use the funds specifically for replacing and upgrading our computers and IT system.”
Sally Cooper, CSR manager for Morrison Construction added, “We are proud to play our part in supporting the change-makers, like Nansen, who work so hard to make a difference in our community. Nansen Highland is a true force for good, providing a wide range of support for young adults with learning difficulties in the area and helping them to move forward with their lives. Thank you to all our staff who have raised such a significant amount to support some of the most vulnerable members of our community.”
