Boost for charity’s appeal


The annual Christmas Toy Appeal of charity Spirit Aid received a sizeable donation from Monklands firm Autonomous iot thanks to gifts handed in by staff, family and friends.

Spirit Aid works with schools across Lanarkshir­e to identify families most in need of help at this time of year, then – thanks to the support of businesses and individual­s – ensures delivery of gifted toys and food hampers to them.

The Airdrie HQ of Autonomous iot, a green product company, was an official Spirit Aid Toy Appeal 2021 collection point and gathered dozens of toys and gifts over the past couple of weeks.

They were handed over to Jim Ridley and Patrick Rolink from Spirit Aid, with Autonomous iot key accounts director John Irons on hand to make sure they made their way on the next leg of their journey to local families in time for Christmas.

John said: “We are proud to be part of the community of North Lanarkshir­e and we’re always keen to give back to local people in need, especially at this time of year.

“On behalf of everyone at Autonomous iot, I’d like to thank the staff, directors and company friends and family who contribute­d.”
