Fife-based timber company pledges donation to Maggie’s charity

JAMES Donaldson & Sons has announced a charity partnership with Maggie’s.

The Fife-based timber company will pair up with the cancer-support charity over the next 12-18 months after pledging to match an employee-raised donations total of up to £25,000 – meaning £50,000 in total could be handed over.

Scott Cairns, group MD at James Donaldson & Sons said, “Every year we support charitable causes at both site and business level, but we were keen to put our weight behind one charity that would be meaningful to us all. Maggie’s initial network of centres marries in well with our own locations. This makes our support of the charity local to our businesses ‘nationwide’, while supporting the local community as Maggie’s supports us.

“We look forward to working closely with Maggie’s over the coming months; we are encouraging our employees to get involved in supporting this fantastic cause wherever they can.”

Maralyn Boyle, partnerships manager of Maggie’s Scotland added, “I am delighted James Donaldson and Sons has chosen us as their charity partner. We rely almost entirely on voluntary donations to support 280,000 visits from people living with cancer at our 22 centres across the UK, so we are incredibly grateful to everyone at James Donaldson and Sons for choosing us. We are greatly looking forward to working with them over the course of the coming year.”
