North-east animal feed firm Harbro is inching towards the halfway target in its 40th anniversary charity fundraising mission.

The Turriff-headquartered firm, which employs 360 people and has an annual turnover of £100million, has set itself a challenge to raise £40,000 for charity to commemorate its 40th year in business.

All funds raised will be split between four charities. These are: Kidney Kids Scotland; Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF); the British Heart Foundation; and north-east cancer charity CLAN.

To date the company has raised £18,866, with the most recent donation being £3,100 from company chairman Peter Kenyon’s daughter Annie.

Insch-based architect Annie Kenyon raised the funds at a recent Burns themed supper and ceilidh at the Lochter Activity Centre, near Oldmeldrum.

She said: “I organise an annual charity event and always choose an organisation close to my heart. With 2017 being Harbro’s 40th anniversary, it was only natural to support them in their challenge to raise money for these worthy causes. We had a fantastic night and great support from my local businesses who donated raffles.”

Harbro managing director Graham Baxter welcomed Ms Kenyon’s donation.

He said: “We are delighted to receive this boost to our funds from Annie and with two big events – a ladies afternoon tea/fashion show and the anniversary ball – still to be held, we are confident of achieving our target.

“Our staff and customers have been getting in the spirit of things and along with suppliers, have been very supportive of our activities.”

He said the company’s next fundraising would be a race night, taking place at The Kastille, in Turriff, on Saturday, April 15.
