Staff at the Moreton Area Centre will be helping to boost charity coffers this autumn when they set up their charity Christmas card stall later this month.

Cards For Good Causes will come to the High Street centre from Wednesday October 22nd, where a wide range of cards and other festive goods are sold to raise funds for good causes and charities this Christmas.

And the Moreton Area Centre was able to raise £14,000 for charity from last year’s Christmas sale drive, which included helping charities such as the British Heart Foundation, Help the Aged, Macmillan Cancer Support and Save the Children.

Clarissa Long, Customer Service Adviser at the MAC, said:  ““This year, we urge everyone to dig deep, get into the festive spirit and help support these very worthwhile charities   “I’m sure that if everyone does their bit, we can beat last year’s total.”

Cards For Good Causes is a not-for-profit organisation, which operates more than 350 shops in churches, libraries, museums and community venues across the country during the festive period.

The last day of trading for the stall at the Moreton Area Centre will be Saturday December 20th.

The Centre opening hours are:-
Monday: 08.45-16.00 Tuesday to Thursday: 08.45-17.15 Friday: 08.45-16.45 Saturday: 10.00-12.30

Morris Leslie plant hire company rises from losing millions to investing £70m

Perthshire plant hire giant Morris Leslie was hit hard by the Covid 19 pandemic, however the company was struggling before that because of Brexit. Six months before Covid 19 shut down building sites and locked down the UK the company Morris Leslie has already experienced tough times. Uncertainty because of Brexit had already caused building projects to be shut down or paused causing a much lower demand for plant hires and sales. This slowdown had caused an oversupply of construction equipment meaning more competition and so reduced prices. Then Covid 19 hit and the group’s vehicle auctions and Sunday car boot market were shut down.
