Corporate Social Responsibility is something that is taken seriously at David Brewster. The business founder, David Brewster, says, “Over the years through my training and in more recent times too, a number of people have helped me along the way. I am very aware I need to put something back to help future generations and the less fortunate.”
David ran the Jedburgh 10km race on Sunday the 30th of October in aid of two charities. The Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET) and RSABI's, the successor to The Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Institution. He ran the race at a personal best of 44 mins and 42 seconds, and 66th out of 359 finishers. The total raised was £200.
The Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET) works to support schools in teaching Scottish schoolchildren about the issues surrounding food, farming and the countryside, through:
- Farm visits.
- Classroom speaker talks.
- Free resources for schools.
- Outdoor education events.
- Projects and activities.
- The Royal Highland Show education programme.
The RSABI provides financial and practical support to over 600 individuals and their families across a range of occupations with the common theme of working on the land in Scotland, or providing services to those who do. They have a skilled and dedicated staff team ready to help, in strictest confidence, anyone within our scope needing support.
There two charities were chosen as they help out people who are in need to support at present and also to educate future generations about agriculture and rural life.
David is planning more charitable work in the future!
