Corporate Social Responsibility

At McGills, we take pride in making a positive contribution to our local communities in Cirencester, Malmesbury and Fairford.

Here is an overview of just a few of the ways in which we have been able to make a difference:

April 2024

We hosted an afternoon tea in aid of Parkinson’s UK!

This is our first fundraising event for our charity of the year, but there is much more to come.

It was fantastic to support such an amazing cause with some sweet treats!

They also attended some local business awards (pictures attached)

Congratulations to all the winners of the Fairford and Lechlade Awards! 🎉

We had a fantastic night sponsoring the event and celebrating the achievements of local businesses.

A big well done to Harriet Elliot from reGarb for winning first place!

August 2023

I picked up the LINC collection pot on Thursday and I am pleased to let you know that there was £137.85 in it. On behalf of LINC may I say a very big thank to all who donated their loose change. Due to the current climate and increasing domestic costs we have received a great deal more requests for financial assistance from LINC patients during their long period of treatment. Thanks to the support of local businesses like McGills we can continue to offer this service.

We are thrilled to be taking part in the Malmesbury Carnival Scarecrow Trail. The trail will run from 4th – 28th August and the theme this year is ‘Cartoon Characters’.
