Staff from CMS Window Systems recently teamed up with Fife charity, the Cottage Family Centre, to help provide much-needed food, children’s clothing, toys and gifts to around 1100 hard-pressed families in the annual Christmas delivery day.

The Cottage Family Centre helps families and children in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Fife. The annual delivery day is the charity’s biggest initiative, which ensures families and children can enjoy Christmas like everyone else.

The initiative relies on the practical support of hundreds of volunteers to organise the many donations into crates and deliver these in just one day to addresses across the town.

As with previous Christmas appeals, the team of volunteers from organisations across Fife was joined by former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who provided essential hands-on support.

The Cottage Family Centre’s Service Manager, Pauline Buchan who organised the day, comments: “It is horrendous that in a developed country like Scotland so many families are still facing such crippling poverty. That’s why events like our Christmas delivery day are so important and why we are so grateful for the support from CMS Window Systems and all those who have donated food, gifts, clothing and more to make a difference to disadvantaged families.”

Operating from its main HQ and production site at Cumbernauld near Glasgow, and its door manufacturing plant in Kirkcaldy, the company works extensively with local authorities, housebuilders, property developers and main contractors to provide windows, doors and curtain walling, which make an important contribution to delivering the most energy efficient and comfortable buildings and homes.
