The team at Branston's Scotland site has provided local organisation Abernethy in Bloom with a significant donation to help fund its future projects, including the development of a fruit tree trail around the village.
Branston general manager Kevin Imrie presented Abernethy in Bloom representative Caroline Boyle with a cheque for £2,000 to provide planters for the organisation and ensure work can begin on improving the path of the fruit tree trail later this month. As well as much-needed funds, staff at Branston’s Abernethy site have been volunteering their time to support the group by painting railings around the village and offering their help to build the path.
Speaking of the donation, Kevin Imrie said: “We are very pleased to offer our support to Abernethy in Bloom and hope that this donation will go some way to helping their fantastic work continue.
“Many of our employees live in and around the village and it’s great to be in the position that we are able to give something back to support the local area. We look forward to seeing the work complete, which will ensure Abernethy
continues to be a beautiful place to live and work.”
Caroline Boyle said: “We could not do half the things we do without the support of Branston. They are helping make a real difference in the village. We are going to use the funds this year for two projects: renewing the worn away steps in the community garden and developing a fruit tree trail for the village.”
