As we all know this has been an extraordinary year and without doubt many people have suffered in many ways.

Charities have also suffered and at a time when they are gearing up to help those in most need this festive season, we have decided to step up and help.  This is why in the absence of a Christmas Party this year, we will spread a little joy by donating some of the funds normally used for enjoying ourselves to special charities in the community, ensuring vulnerable children and adults get the help they need this Christmas.


The first of these charities is CentreStage.  Established in 2006 by Fiona McKenzie and Paul Mathieson, CentreStage use the arts to bring people of all ages and backgrounds together.  Based in Kilmarnock the charity has something for everyone to enjoy from their exciting selection of classes and activities.  Since the onset of the pandemic this year the charity have been focusing on food and wellbeing support for the most vulnerable across Ayrshire communities, and with classes and production put on hold, the team have focused on phone call check-ins, socially distanced visits and sharing some of their ‘fun’ activity online for everyone to enjoy at home.


The charity also continues with development work at the former Kilmarnock Academy site – the new home for CentreStage and as work progresses at pace, you can keep updated via their Facebook page:

William Duncan + Co are delighted to be involved in such a worthwhile local initiative and we urge you to check out their Facebook page and make a donation where possible to support those most at need in our community this Christmas.
