A Bower-based joinery company has just announced a special partnership with a major cancer charity.

Norscot Joinery Ltd, a leading provider of high-quality timber frame kits, windows, and doors in the Highlands, says it is proud to announce a new charity partnership with Maggie’s, a renowned organisation dedicated to providing free support and information to people with cancer.

This partnership signifies a commitment by Norscot to give back to the community and support a cause that touches many lives. Over the next year, Norscot will be supporting Maggie’s through fundraising initiatives, volunteer efforts, and raising awareness of the exceptional cancer support services it provides.

To kick off this year’s donations, Norscot will contribute £500 to provide essential funding for a cancer specialist to listen, answer questions and guide people to the right information at the centre.

Additionally, Norscot team members will participate in the ‘Paws for a Cause’ fundraising event in July, where they will aim to walk 60km, with or without their dogs, donating £1 for each kilometre walked. Prizes will be awarded to the Top Walker and the Best Furry Companion.

Jason Fraser, general manager at Norscot comments: “We are proud to partner with Maggie’s for the coming year.

“The work they do is incredibly important, and we are committed to supporting their mission in every way we can. This partnership reflects our values and dedication to making a positive impact in our community.”

Seonaid Green, Maggie’s Highlands Centre head said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as Norscot’s charity partner and so grateful to them for everything they have already done to help us provide vital psychological and emotional support to people living with cancer, as well as family and friends, across the whole of the Highlands.

“As a charity, the majority of our funding comes from voluntary donations so this kind of support is invaluable and we look forward to welcoming the Norscot team to our centre.”
