For a number of years Greaves West & Ayre have contributed £50 to local causes, including clubs, charities and associations, nominated by our employees.
For this our Centenary year, we have increased the value of the donations to £100. The range of causes we have been able to support so far have included sports clubs, animal charities, lifeboat stations and health and welfare organisations. The programme runs until the end of March 2019 and we hope to be able to support even more worthy causes before then.
Once again, our staﬀ supported BBC Children in Need. We were thrilled to be able to substantially increase last year’s donation to £428 after organising a cake sale and a ‘dress-down’ day collection.
Throughout December both oﬃces in Berwick and Haddington were drop oﬀ points for the Radio Borders and Forth1 Mission Christmas campaign. Across the Borders, Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife (the areas that the two radio stations cover) 26,241 local children beneﬁted from the campaign’s donations of gifts and cash. A fantastic achievement.
