Kind hearted security team raise over £600 for local kids

The security team at Inverness Airport has raised an amazing £600 to date for the ‘Cash for Kids’ appeal run by Moray Firth Radio (MFR).  Their colleagues at the airport, as well as Pristine, AGS, Dalcross Handling, and a number of concessionaires, including the Whiskey Shop, Avis, Delish and WHSmith got right behind them by donating to this very worthwhile cause.  In addition to the cash they have also donated £100 worth of toys.

‘Cash for Kids’ is the official charity of Moray Firth Radio (MFR) and aims to provide a helping hand to disabled and disadvantaged children around the Highlands, Moray and Aberdeenshire.  All of the money raised is done locally and spent locally – going to children and young people under the age of 18 throughout the region.

Libby Gunn, Ground Security Operative at Inverness Airport, said: “This year has been an exceptional one and we all know families who have struggled.  As a grandma it is beyond upsetting to think of any child not having a gift on Christmas morning.

“At HIAL, we do all that we can to give back to communities in our area and we are delighted to be able to help ensure all children will have a gift to open on the 25th.

“I have been overwhelmed by the support and generosity of our colleagues and everyone at Inverness Airport who have helped our security team with their fundraising.  This has very much been a team effort.  I would also like to say a special thanks to Alan from Avis along with Tom Chalmers and Kerry Main.”

Lyndsay Rose, Charity Manager for MFR Cash for Kids, said: “We are  delighted with this donation from the security team and everyone at Inverness Airport.  It’s been a very challenging year for everyone so it’s fantastic to see businesses come together to make a difference to children in our community this winter.

“Not only do these donations allow us to deliver Christmas gifts but we are also supporting numerous families with basic essentials such as warm winter clothing, beds and bedding.  Thank you so much to everyone involved.

The team at Inverness Airport plan on helping the ‘Cash for Kids’ appeal in the coming years and would like to thank everyone for their generosity during these particularly challenging times.
