Supporting our local community with a passion
As a company that has from the very beginning been deeply invested in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and North East Scotland we always try to do our best to give something back to the community that has given us so much. You can find out more about the strong commitment we keep to our shared local community below.
Eilidh Haggart, Thistle Windows’ PA to Directors & HR Coordinator, is no stranger to championing charitable causes. Since joining the company in 2013 she has always been heavily involved with Thistle Windows’ efforts in fundraising and charitable work, which has included activities and support for a wide range of charities including CLAN Cancer Support, Funding Neuro, Instant Neighbour, Cash For Kids and Save The Children and Dogs Trust.
And Eilidh’s passion for helping others hasn’t stopped there – she has recently gone above and beyond the call of duty in her own personal efforts to help a local storm-hit animal sanctuary with an innovative and unique fundraising drive.read more

On Friday 2nd May 2014 the team at Thistle Windows & Conservatories donned their masks, capes and skin-tight bodysuits for Northsound 1′s Cash For Kids Superhero Day.
The aim of Cash For Kids Superhero day was to raise funds to support disabled and disadvantaged children living in our local community: by encouraging local businesses, workplaces and schools to get involved and raise awareness and funds while dressing as Superheroes for the day – or by just being Superheroes by fundraising! In addition to being the main sponsors for the event, Team Thistle was committed to raising additional funds for the charity. Our own in-house Superheroes combined their culinary super-powers for a Cash For Kids Charity Bake Sale, with a Superhero Mystery Prize Raffle also attracting a large amount of donations.read more
A team of Thistle Windows & Conservatories staff, friends and family recently took part in the CLAN Landmark Walk – a sponsored walk for local cancer support charity CLAN, to raise awareness, funds and mark 30 years of cancer support across North East Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.
Everyone from Team Thistle who took part managed to complete the entire route, although there were a few sore feet and aching legs once everyone had passed the finish line – thankfully Thistle Managing Director Ian Bruce came to the rescue with emergency Ice Creams which were sorely needed! The team from Thistle Windows and Conservatoriesmanaged to raise over £1400 through sponsorship of the CLAN Landmark Walk a really great achievement and well worth everyone’s efforts (and aches and pains!).read more

We would like to share Ian’s story with you:read more
