CMS marks 10 year anniversary with donation to Kirkcaldy Family Centre

  • 25 Feb 2016

CMS Window Systems has donated £1000 to the Cottage Family Centre, which provides vital services to families in Fife.

The donation marks the beginning of CMS’s year of extensive charity support in recognition of the business’s 10 year anniversary. The company will make ten £1000 donations over the next year to causes nominated by its customers.

Kirkcaldy’s Cottage Family Centre is the first charity to benefit from a donation after being nominated by Fife Council. Established in 1987, the Centre offers support to families with pre-school children who are vulnerable to factors such as poverty, unemployment and health issues.

The Centre offers playgroups, mother-and-baby sessions, adult education classes, parenting skills workshops, and children’s counselling services.

Pauline Buchan, the Centre’s Services Manager commented: “We’d like to express our gratitude to CMS for their very generous donation to the Cottage Family Centre. 

Local families who use the centre rely on the assistance we make available to them – CMS’s contribution will help us develop initiatives which complement, support and extend our main services to vulnerable families.”

In addition to its longstanding relationships with charities, CMS actively encourages its employees to help local charities through volunteering and fundraising. Last year its employees raised over £6500 to fund the Lanarkshire Beatson radiotherapy treatment centre.

Andy Kerr, CMS’s Managing Director, said: “The last decade has seen a great deal of positive change for CMS. Since 2006, we’ve grown to be a leading window manufacturing business with a workforce of over 245 and a £35m annual turnover, and we’re keen to be responsible and give back to our community where we can. 

Our market-leading sustainability and recycling policies, as well as our apprenticeship scheme to promote local employment, all demonstrate our commitment to helping our communities thrive, and we feel that our ‘ten charities for ten years’ programme for 2016 will be a great way to contribute. We hope that the Cottage Family Centre is able to use our donation to continue their great work helping the families of Fife.”
