Bainsford based cleaning company Moirs have raised over £900 for Strathcarron Hospice in less than a month.

The firm raised £850 for the charity by participating in Stirling’s first marathon in May and on Friday staff took part in the Hospice’s Go Yellow Day raising a further £90.

Moirs became a charitable partner of the Hospice in 2015, when it sponsored the charity’s It’s a Knockout event, and has gone on to raise over £5000 for the charity in just two years.

Owner Cariss Moir said: “Team Moirs brightened everyone’s day with their sunny yellow costumes on Friday. Staff paid a £1 to dress up and we also received lots of generous donations from our lovely customers. We matched the money raised by the team on their rounds, which added to the money raised by the marathon brings the total donated this month to £940. We’re proud to support the work of Strathcarron and would encourage other local companies to sign up as a charitable partner.”

A spokesperson for Strathcarron Hospice said: “Moirs are a truly outstanding supporter of Strathcarron and we are constantly inspired by the teams’ drive and passion for raising funds for the Hospice. £5,000 is enough to pay for almost 11 days of care for one patient in the Hospice and we are incredibly grateful to Cariss and the team at Moirs for their continued support.”
