Eileen Rae, category buyer at Macphie, helped raise nearly £700 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

Eileen used one of her CSR days to join a team of volunteers at the annual ‘RNLI Bad Boy Breakfast Day” serving their infamous breakfast stack of egg, bacon, haggis, black pudding, lorne sausages and a tattie scone all in the one bun. The money raised will go toward the valuable equipment the volunteer lifeboat crew members need to continue saving lives which includes everything from boots to boats.  The Macphie charities committee also donated £200 to support the cause which saved 442 lives last year alone.

As part of Macphie’s commitment to corporate social responsibility, every employee is entitled to apply for up to two working days per year to assist on local community projects or charitable/volunteer work. Examples of the type of event that is covered includes, supporting a community initiative to refurbish a village hall, helping with a community garden project, setting up for a charity event or time with an existing volunteer organisation.
