Havelock International Supports Local Arts Charity

Interior fit-out specialist Havelock International is supporting a local charity by donating storage units and kitchen cabinets for the art club’s new premises.

Glenrothes Art Club recently moved in to larger and more modern facilities in the centre of the town.

Mark Richards, Design Director at Havelock International commented:

“We heard the art club had moved to new premises and were looking for help to fit out the space.  It’s great to be able to support the local art community. Design is such an important part of our business and these clubs are essential to help encourage the next generation of designers.”

Lillian Sloan, Glenrothes Art Club President said:

“We were thrilled to receive the support from a local company. The installation by Havelock International was very professional and the new units are a great addition to our facilities. Every donation we get really makes a difference and helps us to focus our resources on providing art classes and supporting local artists.”

Both organisations have a long heritage in the local community. 

Havelock International has its roots in the well known A H McIntosh, famous for domestic dining furniture, which was started by local man Alexander Henry McIntosh 150 years ago, and the current 200,000 sq. ft. factory premises in Kirkcaldy has been home to the company for nearly 50 years. 

Glenrothes Art Club was founded in 1955 by early settlers of the new town.  The new, modern, facilities in Caledonia House, Saltire Centre will give the club space to grow and develop in the future.

Havelock International regularly supports charities. Earlier this year they raised over £2,800 for Cancer Research by holding a fun day. Next month one of their employees is taking part in the 26-mile Rob Roy Mighty Hike for MacMillan Cancer Support.

George McAdam, Havelock International’s CEO said: “We think it’s vital to support our local communities and we hope that this donation will make a real difference”.
