Employees helped to repair a bridge and improve footpaths to enhance access for visitors.

Neil McDonagh, Bottling Operations Manager at Chivas Brothers’ is part of the volunteer group helping to regenerate Gleniffer Braes.

He said: “It’s great to be able to team up with my colleagues and do something good for our community. A lot of us visit Gleniffer Braes regularly so we really wanted to help make it a more enjoyable place by enhancing some of its features.

“I’m really proud to be part of Chivas Brothers’ Responsib’ALL Day. It’s a rewarding project which enables us to make a real difference in our local community.”

Councillor Eddie Devine, convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Environment Policy Board, said: “We are delighted to have the support of Chivas Brothers for the work being done at Gallowhill Primary School and Gleniffer Braes Country Park.

“The school allotment will be a great asset for local children and the improvements to the park will be appreciated by the many local residents who visit Gleniffer Braes to walk their dogs or spend time with their family. Renfrewshire Council is grateful to the ChivasBrothers’ team for their collective effort.”
