Paisley contractor spreads Christmas cheer across central Scotland

PAISLEY-based The JR Group has donated more than 1,700 selection boxes to charities and organisations across central Scotland.

The contractor selected ten groups to support this Christmas including Whiterose Community Hall, Shettleston Growing Project, Shettleston Housing Association, Kindless Homeless Street Team, Glasgow City Mission Family Centre, Anderston Primary School, Govan HELP, Fife Housing Group, Renfrewshire Toy Bank and Dalmilling Primary School in Ayr.

The JR Group also recently handed over a cheque for £111,875 to the Emmie Smillie Charity Foundation following the company’s Winter Wonderland Ball.

MD John Horne said, “We are committed to keeping the Christmas spirit alive this year, it is a key time for ourselves and our partners to come together and help to make people smile this festive season. The organisations and groups we have supported this year span the full central belt of Scotland from Fife over in the east coast to Ayr in the west with many other locations in between, so I would like to thank our team, our business partners and their colleagues for helping with this year’s drive and making it such a success.”
