Staff at a Donside-based builders merchants raised more than £1000 for charity following their efforts in support of Comic Relief.

Employees from the Westhill and Inverurie branches of GPH Builders Merchants prepared sweet and savory treats as part of a nation-wide bake off for the charity.

GPH customers and staff made donations in return for a sample of the cakes on offer, raising more than £1100.

The firm also hosted an online Red Nose ‘selfie’ competition through its Facebook page.

The company encouraged people to submit funny photos wearing red noses and/or glasses, with the best shot winning a prize.

Sales and marketing director for GPH, Nikki Mortimer, said: “We support a number of charities, and getting involved with the Red Nose celebrations was a fantastic way of demonstrating team spirit amongst our employees.

“Our selfie competition encouraged people to get involved and we hope also highlighted the importance of the charity. We received some fantastic photos from both staff and customers who were only too willing to do something funny for money.

“We would like to thank our teams in Inverurie and Westhill.”
