Quarriers, one of Scotland’s leading social care charities, has announced a charity partnership with The Malcolm Group, the logistics and construction specialists.

The Malcolm Group is donating the livery of a walking floor trailer to Quarriers and donors can pay £1000 to have their business or name featured on the truck which will drive across Scotland/the UK. Already almost 20 businesses have committed their support.

A special event took place at the Donald Malcolm Heritage Centre in Linwood where Andrew Malcolm, CEO of the Malcolm Group and Iain Good, Commercial Director met with Quarriers Chief Executive Alice Harper and David Adams, former Trustee of Quarriers who facilitated the partnership.

Also in attendance at the event were two young people who are supported by Quarriers’ Stopover service which provides supported accommodation for young homeless people aged 16-25. The charity was keen to bring along some people it supported so they could see behind the scenes of a successful organisation.

Speaking about the partnership, Quarriers Chief Executive Alice Harper said: “We are thrilled to announce this partnership with The Malcolm Group. Quarriers’ roots are in Quarriers Village near Bridge of Weir just a stone’s throw away from Linwood where The Malcolm Group was founded and is still headquartered today.

“This is a particularly well-suited partnership as Quarriers and The Malcolm Group share similar values. We both believe in offering people opportunities and the chance for people to realise their potential no matter what obstacles have been in their way. The support and generosity shown by The Malcolm Group is humbling and we are very grateful.”

The money raised from the donations will go towards a number of different services. The social care charity provides practical care and support for thousands of vulnerable children, adults and families who face extremely challenging circumstances. It’s wide and varied services support adults and children with disabilities, young people facing homelessness, families facing poverty, unpaid carers and people affected by disability.

Andrew Malcolm, CEO of The Malcolm Group said: “We are pleased to support Quarriers as we believe in offering people opportunities to grow, thrive and realise their potential.”
