Jason Glass, Camphill Blair Drummond’s Director of Operations, said:
We have had the privilege of working with the Brownriggs team as our Quantity Surveyors for over 10 years on our Capital Development Project. They have supported us in many ways, through the provision of excellent professional advice, attending a number of community events and now volunteering in our community.
We appreciate their ongoing support and their time volunteering with us, contributing to the development of our estate.

Following the visit of the volunteers from Enterprise, Jason Glass, Camphill Blair Drummond’s Director of Operations, said:
We continue to welcome a number of organisations to our community as part of the Corporate Employee Volunteering experiences we offer. Enterprise are one such organisation we recently had the privilege to welcome and who had a great day on our estate, volunteering alongside the people we support.
Such volunteering experiences are invaluable for us in terms of maintaining and developing our estate. We look forward to welcoming Enterprise again in the near future.
