Windmills is a social enterprise café in the heart of Motherwell with a reputation for quality food and family friendly customer service. The Café provides a community hub for local groups and financially supports the charitable aims of Windmills Lanarkshire who are committed to investing in young people with learning disabilities. They have developed award winning teaching resources which allow young people with learning disabilities, including low literacy groups, to achieve mainstream qualifications, ‘hands on’ experience, life and social skills, confidence and independence.
The public and private sectors came together in true partnership to help Windmills with Procast together with Lanarkshire based members of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, raising funds for this worthy cause.
North Lanarkshire based Station Manager Gregor McPherson who is retiring after 30yrs public service helping members of our communities and had a strong desire to help Windmills Café one last time before he left the service, he and his colleagues raised a marvellous amount of £500.
Gregor said “Windmills Café in Motherwell Town Centre are a fantastic cause to donate the funds raised at my retiral day to. The work they do is priceless and touched my heart”.
On hearing of this amazing achievement, Procast were delighted to match the sum raised by Gregor and his colleagues.
Procast Managing Director Derek Innes said “I have worked here in North Lanarkshire for many years and I have built my company on high standards, values and innovative vision. Part of my vision is supporting and working in close cooperation with our communities. Windmill café are inspiring and humbling, and to see and hear first hand the difference their contribution makes to individuals, families and the local community is really incredible”.
