There was a welcome four-figure boost for Buckie’s All Boys Brigade recently thanks to the staff at Moray Crematorium.
A very special guest was welcomed to the company’s new base at One Marchmont in the form of business leader and memorial advisor Barry Robertson of the Crematorium and Memorial Group, which operates the Moray Crematorium in Broadley, near Buckie.
Mr. Robertson brought with him a check for £5,000 for 1st Buckie.
It was a good and timely payment to the treasury, explained company captain Alan Mackintosh.
“We are very pleased with this generous donation from Dignity UK Moray Crematorium, especially as we have moved to new premises at One Marchmont,” he said.
“The money will be used to support the children.
“One of our main priorities right now is to upgrade our sports equipment.”
During his visit to the company’s new home, Mr. Robertson is left impressed by what he has seen.
He commented: “At Dignity UK Moray Crematorium, we aim to contribute to local life, from education and support in end-of-life matters, to community initiatives and philanthropy.
“The donation is direct from Dignity UK and we as the team at Moray Crematorium want to connect with the community locally and all over the region.
“We are pleased to help fund the activities that the Boys Brigade provides and to ensure that young people in our community are able to learn, enjoy and discover in a safe environment.”
“As a team we chose BB, we wanted the money to go locally to a group we all believe in and when I spoke to Alan he overwhelmed me with the donation and proudly told me about the group. He even invited me to the building they used and told me how the donation would be spent and about other donations they had received.
“The way it’s run, the passionate volunteers, the activities they do and the organizing for the future is incredible. I went to see Buckie’s Anniversary Parade last year and I thought it was amazing.”
Mr. Robertson added that, moving forward, the team at the crematorium had hoped to use events and other opportunities to connect with the local community.
The Crematorium and Memorial Group operates a total of 46 crematoriums across the UK.
Bucky’s first company began to move into her new home, which for some years had been the site of a lamp factory, in the second half of January, and the older boys were the first to settle into their new home.
That ended the roving presence of the Buckie BBs, who had previously settled at Buckie Community High School, and finally the town’s South and West Church. The new base allows the company to use a great hall, kitchen, four classrooms and a shop.
It is envisaged that the second phase will bring with it rooms for handicrafts and other activities all under one roof.
