Castlehill shows support for local charities

As the Festive season approaches, Castlehill has been gathering goods for those who may struggle during the season.

Over the last few weeks, Castlehill employees have been donating for the Associations annual food and gift appeal organised by their Social and Charities committee.

Two carloads of non-perishable foods will be divided between the Cyrenians and the Inverurie food bank, with several bags of donated gifts going to the Grampian Women’s Aid and Northsounds Cash for Kids appeal.

‘Castlehill understands that as we approach the end of the year some families and individuals struggle badly with the stress of Christmas and food bank demand will be incredibly high.  Our staff have been very generous, and it was important to us to be giving to charities who work with people in need.’ said Nicola Shand from the Committee.

Money raised from the canteen Tuck Box which runs all year, has been donated to four local charities, Salvation Army, Gordon Dementia Services, Mrs Murray’s Cat and dog home and Halfpenny Animal Sanctuary in Kintore.
