Work in the Community
Since day one, we’ve been committed to playing an active role in our local community. Even today, with awards and accreditations to our name, we still regard it as being of vital importance. Our community work breathes life into all that we do, and we’re always looking for new ways we can be a valuable asset to those in need. Over the years we've supported and been involved with a host of local events and projects, including:
By 2021, we’d become so fed up with the terrible state of our beautiful countryside—the vast amount of litter was negatively affecting local wildlife and rural businesses. That’s why we took action by carrying out a series of legendary litterpicks. We promoted them, invested in the necessary equipment, and incentivised people to help by offering free fish and chip lunches for all participating pickers. Our efforts were not in vain. In over 6 months we collected more than 1 tonne of litter! This is a whopping amount, especially when you consider that most of it was empty cans, plastic bottles, crisp packets, and wet wipes.
Sadly, there is no shortage of refuse, so our litterpicking work will continue through 2022. But considering how enjoyable and rewarding these events have been, it’s unlikely we’re going to give up the fight! If you’d like to get involved don’t hesitate to find out more. Everyone is welcome to join and these events are always a good craic!
We’ve secured and provided prizes, sponsorship, fundraising, and advertising for a multitude of events. Working in association with The Crianlarich Nursery, The Retirement home, The Killin Highland Games, Killin Cancer committee, The Killin Pantomime for the Amateur Drama Club, Breast Way Round Scotland. Our work has also managed to raise thousands for MacMillan Cancer Care.
LOCAL BIKE SKILLS PARK
We’re currently helping with the planning and fundraising for a local bike skills park which we hope will be built in early 2023, near Tyndrum at Dalrigh.
