A SCOTTISH social care charity is celebrating a fundraising boost of nearly £20,000, thanks to a partnership with a construction firm.

Logistics and construction specialists the Malcolm Group has donated the livery of a walking floor trailer to Quarriers and donors have pledged £1000 to the charity to have their business or name featured on the trailer which will travel along the M74 and M6. The money raised will support Quarriers’ services throughout Scotland.
