Brightwork Partners with Scotland’s Children with Motor Impairments charity
The Brightwork Group has signed-up as a charity partner with the Scottish Centre for Children with Motor Impairments, based in Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire.
Shan Saba, a director at Brightwork, said, “The Scottish Centre for Children with Motor Impairments does an outstanding job in looking after, educating and developing children with a variety of neurological impairment, principally cerebral palsy, while also providing vital support to their parents.
“As a company with a strong commitment to corporate social responsibility we are humbled to have the opportunity to assist them, by fund-raising and organising events amongst our 66 (?) employees which will help make the children and young people’s lives just a little better.”
Anne Taylor, administration officer of the charity, said, “We asked Brightwork to source staff to assist our onsite catering facility and were visited a couple of months ago by two of its recruitment consultants, to assess our requirements with a view to seeking out our new staff member. When we showed the Brightwork consultants our facility and explained about our work, they were so impressed they suggested they should ask their colleagues to nominate us as their charity partner for 2016-17.
“Following a meeting with the senior management team at Brightwork, we were delighted they wish to be a fundraising partner for us and we believe this will be a hugely beneficial relationship in supporting the children and parents we serve.
“While we are grant-funded by the Scottish Government we need, nevertheless, to raise in excess of £300,000 a year just to maintain the current services we provide to young people and their parents, so support from Brightwork means a great deal.”
