Christmas charity day in Fife

CMS contributes to Christmas charity day in Fife

  • 10 Jan 2017

Over Christmas, CMS Window Systems lent a helping hand to the Cottage Family Centre, offering its storage facilities and vehicles to assist in the preparation and delivery of Christmas hampers for disadvantaged children.

Based in Fife, the Cottage Family Centre charity aims to support disadvantaged and vulnerable families and individuals, who are affected by poor housing, low pay and poverty. These factors – in addition to health difficulties, relationship breakdown and drug and alcohol problems – make them susceptible to social exclusion.

CMS Window Systems, a Castlecarry-based company, has provided ongoing support for the charity for a number of years.

Through its work with Fife Council – which involves the provision of energy efficient windows, doors and curtain walling to improve the comfort and quality of social housing – the company has become well-acquainted with the communities to Fife.

Therefore, CMS’ team was happy to lend its delivery vehicles, storage facilities and manpower to assist on the Cottage Family Centre’s recent charity day, which took place over the Christmas period.

The team joined hundreds of volunteers – including former Prime Minister and MP for Fife, Gordon Brown – to prepare crates of food and bags of new toys and children’s clothes. These were then distributed to over 400 families in Kirkcaldy and the surrounding area.

The company provided warehousing, which became the central hub of the operation, and drivers with their vans to deliver the Christmas bundles. Their contribution helped to provide a festive boost for hundreds of families and children in Fife.
