For the second year running, we have supported the Jimmy Dunnachie Family Centre in Darnley with a Christmas toy and food parcel donation.
The Jimmy Dunnachie Family Learning Centre provides childcare and family support facilities for local families, many of whom are living in severe poverty.
Susan Cardwell, our business development & marketing manager, said: “It’s upsetting to think that in Glasgow over 37% of children are living in poverty with families reliant on food banks and donations to feed and clothe their children. Having three children of my own, who are more fortunate that others, it’s important for them to understand this and to do what they can to support others less fortunate than themselves.
“We reached out to our staff and supply chain and have been overwhelmed with donations of food, pre-loved and new toys. We hope that every child who is supported by the centre wakes up on Christmas morning with a gift from Santa”
Centre headteacher Ann Robb said: “Staff, children and families at The Jimmy Dunnachie Family Learning Centre feel quite overwhelmed at the generosity of Redpath Construction and associates. Gifts and donations support our most vulnerable families and without these Christmas is a very meagre prospect.
“We are proud to call Redpath Construction our collaborative community partners and thank them most sincerely for their support and that of their associated companies.”
We would like to thank our staff and the following suppliers for their generous donations: Saltire Access, Rainbow Blinds, Planet Partitioning, QC Contracts, J Scott & Sons, John N Dunn and FBS Contracts.
