City Building gives back with bumper gift drive this Christmas

LEADING Glasgow-based construction firm, City Building, has delighted hundreds of local young people by donating 197 Christmas gifts to Glasgow’s Spirit of Christmas gift drive in aid of Possilpark’s social work service.

The organisation’s support will ensure that vulnerable young people across the area receive a Christmas gift this year.

Festive cheer is plentiful at the construction firm, with donations coming from across the business including the firm’s thriving apprenticeship base and the RSBi factory that specialises in supported disability employment.

The decision to donate to Possilpark’s social work service was made by tradespeople at City Building after they identified that the current cost of living crisis would negatively impact local service provisions and potentially leave local children without a special gift this Christmas.

Alan Burns Executive Director at City Building said, “Every child deserves to wake up to a special gift on Christmas day, regardless of their situation.

“I am so proud of all the City Building staff who decided to get involved and give back this festive period. Community is a top concern of City Building as we look to enrich and sustain the areas in which we work and live.

“From all of us at City Building, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We look forward to continuing our mission of building a sustainable future in 2023.”

The construction firm has earned a compelling reputation for benefiting the local areas it works within by supporting and donating to local causes. Earlier this year, it donated £8,000 worth of stationery supplies to Springburn based first year pupils in a bid to set them up for the new school year.

City Building employs around 2,000 members of staff from in and around the Glasgow area. With more than 250 apprentices, the organisation is one of Scotland’s largest employers of apprentices and runs one of the UK’s largest training programmes.

City Building carries out a wide range of services from the construction of new builds to repairs and maintenance, manufacturing, and training, and is one of Scotland’s largest construction firms. For more information, visit
