Being an active member of the local and wider community means doing whatever we can to support good causes. We have an open mind to requests and always give them full consideration. And whilst we are not able to support every cause, we do prioritise initiatives which we believe will deliver benefit to those least able to help themselves.
The Cottage Family Centre
Joining volunteers from across Kirkcaldy, including its former MP Gordon Brown, a team of CMS employees give up their time annually to help deliver crates of food, bags of new toys and children’s clothes to hundreds of needy families in Fife each Christmas. CMS also provides the Cottage Family Centre with generous donations, and it helps to facilitate an extensive storage and logistics warehouse for the charity at its Kirkcaldy premises.
BBC DIY SOS
CMS helped Nick Knowles and the BBC DIY SOS team improve the lives of war veterans in Manchester, as well as helping survivors of the Grenfell Tower disaster in London.
Veteran's Village, Manchester
The project was undertaken to help create an improved, more resident friendly neighbourhood that everyone - veterans and their local community alike - feel proud to live in. In BBC1’s two-part special, the DIY SOS team transformed 66 houses in Manchester’s New Street and Canada Street and CMS manufactured and installed all the PVC windows for the project.
Grenfell Community Centre and Boxing club
CMS provided aluminium window frames to Nick Knowles and his BBC DIY SOS team for their ambitious project to deliver a new boxing club and community centre for Grenfell residents.
To date AquAid has supplied more than 2 million people in Africa with clean drinking water as a result of support from companies like CMS. The well built with donations from CMS is located in Zimbabwe in Manicaland – a province in the north eastern highlands of Zimbabwe. find out more
