Wood panel manufacturer, West Fraser (trading as Norbord), has donated much-needed funds to two local community groups; the Cowie Rural Action Group (CRAG) and the Cowie United Football Club’s girls’ team,
The donation of £2,500 was provided to CRAG, a group which runs annual community events for all residents in Cowie to enjoy. The funds will help the group to support events such as cooking and art classes, play days for children and community bingo. The donation will also contribute to the Action team’s recent installation of a local defibrillator, a potentially life-saving piece of equipment for residents to use in case of an emergency. With the £500 donation, Cowie United Football Club was able to support the youth team players by providing new kits.
Clare Stevenson, treasurer at CRAG and Cowie United Football Club said:
“We’re hugely grateful for the team at West Fraser to showcase their generosity to both CRAG and Cowie United FC. With this kind of support, we can further help support the people of our community here in Cowie.”
Carol Brown, Head of HR at the West Fraser site in Cowie said:
“We are always proud to serve our local community and are glad we could begin our year by supporting these fantastic groups.”
