We understand more than most the positive impact that financial support and additional resource can have on charities and that’s why we regularly help several charitable organisations. We support diverse charities that provide assistance for those affected by cancer, disabilities and Army veterans in need of help. We also support our local rugby club and everything they do to promote sport to our youngsters.
We do our utmost to provide meaningful support to our chosen charities, and if you would like to do likewise then please see the details of these charities below.
NWM is proud to support Ayrshire Cancer Support. NWM is the main sponsor of the Turnberry Shoot charity clay event, which takes place annually at the fabulous five-star Trump Turnberry Hotel and shooting ground each August. The 2022 event made a phenomenal profit of £24,097 with every penny of that going to help with the construction of the new cancer centre in Ayr.

NWM is proud to support the Ayrshire Hospice Summer Ball. This ball is the charity's main fundraising event of the year and if you would like to attend and support the charity then individual places or tables are still available for the next event. The Ayrshire Hospice provides outstanding quality care and services which helps those with any life-limiting illness. Care is provided where there is no cure for the condition, but which improves the quality of each day for people who have a limited time to live. The charity helps adults throughout Ayrshire and Arran with life-limiting illness such as cancer, neurological conditions, end stage heart failure and lung disease. They help people to live as actively as they can to the end of their lives - however long that may be, wherever that may be. The care they provide not only seeks to alleviate pain and symptoms, but also allows people to stay engaged with friends, family and their community. They not only look after people’s physical needs but also attend to their emotional, spiritual and social needs too. The patient and their family are at the centre of all the care they provide. Family members, close friends and carers are also supported both during a person’s illness and following bereavement. They provide care in several places, including people’s own homes, hospitals and care homes as well as in our purpose-built day care and in-patient units. Wherever suits the patients best.
NWM is proud to support the ABF Scotland’s Charity Clay Shoot. If you fancy trying to be the “Top Gun” and win a brass shell from the famous Edinburgh Castle One O’Clock gun, then this is a great charity event looking for teams. The ABF is the British Army's national charity and gives a lifetime of support to soldiers and veterans from the British Army, and their immediate families, when they are in need. They make grants to individuals through their Regiments and Corps and support a wide range of specialist charities that sustain the British Army ‘family’, both at home and around the world. They take pride in being responsive, making a difference at a critical point in peoples’ lives. They have been doing this since 1944, working with veterans of every conflict, and they envisage continuing doing so for the ‘long haul’; supporting all future generations of our soldiers and their dependants.
NWM is proud to support and sponsor Ayr Rugby Football Club. The club is one of the oldest in Scotland having been founded in 1897 and today supports youth rugby, women’s rugby and men’s rugby along with school and community rugby. These are exciting times for the club as they have recently won both the Scottish Premiership and Scottish Cup in 2019.
NWM is proud to support the Halow Project Damon Hill Karting Challenge. If you fancy being on the same track and racing against former F1 World Champion Damon Hill, then this is a great charity event looking for teams. The Halow Project is dedicated to creating opportunities and supporting young people aged 16-35 with a learning disability so that they are able to live independent, meaningful, fulfilled lives and become more involved in their local community.
NWM holds its own charity clay shoot annually at the Bisley at Braidwood ground near Melrose to raise funds for charity. If you would like to join us at our next event, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
NWM is proud to support Whiteleys Retreat. As a recently launched charity, they need all the support they can get. In June 2016, the closure of CLIC Sargent’s Malcolm Sargent House in Prestwick saw a small group of volunteers set out to ensure that there would continue to be a much-needed respite facility for children and young people with cancer and life altering illness in Ayrshire.
Led by CEO and Trustee Maxine Allan who continues to donate her expertise and time to the charity; a new Ayrshire charity, Whiteleys Retreat was formed in December 2016. Thanks to the devotion of volunteers throughout Ayrshire both in the community and corporate sectors, who worked tirelessly with the CEO to fundraise, it has been possible to renovate and open Whiteleys Retreat in September 2018.
NWM is proud to support and sponsor the Sandringham Charity Clay Shoot. This event is held on the Royal Sandringham Estate by the gracious permission of Her Majesty The Queen and is organised by Holts Auctioneers annually to raise much needed funds for The Gurkha Welfare Trust. If you wish to make a donation to the charity then that would be very much appreciated.
NWM is proud to support Operation Christmas Child for Samaritan's Purse. Our Ayr Office organised the Christmas Shoe Box donations and managed to collect a staggering 73 Shoe Boxes packed full of small toys, school supplies, toothbrushes, hairbrushes, hats, scarves and anything else a child could need for a better Christmas.
