We at Anderson Maguire are aware that keeping our team hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the work day.
As a result, we decided to invest in watercoolers from AquaAid
Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust.
These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ – a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.
Our organisation’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future.
To date AquAid have built over 8,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia; and have donated in excess of £13 million to charity.
Members of the local Council and the local business community recently helped to officially open Anderson Maguire’s newest funeral home at 132 Cumbernauld Road, Muirhead. It is the company’s 15th location in the Greater Glasgow area and the new facility, located in the former Airdrie Savings Bank in Muirhead, has led to the transformation of this well-known building.
Declan Maguire, Managing Director of Anderson Maguire Funeral Directors, said:
“Our opening in Muirhead reflects our response to an increasing number of families in the area calling on our help at their time of need. We are one of Scotland’s most preeminent funeral firms and we have an established an unrivalled reputation for providing the highest standard of service coupled with compassion and dignity.”
The contemporary funeral home has a reception area, private arrangement office and a family visitation suite where family and friends can come to pay their respects in tranquil and dignified surroundings.
The firm, which has won many awards for its service has twice been winners of the Glasgow Herald Family Business of the Year.
To celebrate the opening of our newest branch in Muirhead, the Anderson Maguire Foundation is delighted to be sponsoring Bedlay Community Football Club. We love playing an integral role in the communities we serve and our sponsorship has allowed the club to get new training kit for the boys and rain jackets for the girls team.
Scotland’s largest independent family funeral directors, Anderson Maguire, continues to grow its presence in Glasgow with the opening of a new branch in Crown Street, Glasgow.
Declan Maguire, Managing Director of Anderson Maguire, commented:
“We remain a steadfastly independent, family owned and run business and we have a special legacy to the people of Glasgow and the communities we work in. We are in a particularly strong growth phase at present with an increasing demand for our services and we are delighted to open our new Crown Street branch. The branch is being managed by local lady, Sally Friel, who has extensive links with the Gorbals community.”
“We continue to succeed as a family business because we are an integral part of the community through the personal relationships we build with families throughout the generations. By doing what we do very well, we have built a loyalty to our family business and it is the backbone of our success.”
We were delighted to be joined at the opening by the ladies from The Gorbalites, Councillor Mhairi Hunter and Bailie James Scanlon from Glasgow City Council.
