Luxury jewellery retailer Chisholm Hunter helped to raise money for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) at the charity’s annual ‘A Question of Burns’ supper.
Chisholm Hunter sponsored the prestigious event for the ninth consecutive year, after managing director Harry Brown attended as a guest back in 2008 and immediately decided to get involved.
As the Presenting Sponsor, Chisholm Hunter also donated two sets of 18ct white gold and diamond earrings worth £1500 each for the grand prize draw as well as 10 designer watches for the quiz prizes.
400 generous guests joined Chisholm Hunter and SBH Scotland for its traditional black tie Burns Supper fundraiser at the Glasgow’s Hilton Hotel. Former Scottish international rugby captain and TV sports presenter Andy Nicol hosted the festivities. Revellers enjoyed an opulent evening of speeches, poetry, four courses of Scottish fayre and a quiz on all things Rabbie Burns. More than £46,000 was raised at the event.
Harry Brown, managing director at Chisholm Hunter, comments: “It’s an honour to support such an outstanding charity, and we are proud to have been involved with this fantastic event since 2009. Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland does an excellent job, which makes a significant difference to the lives of over 3,000 children, young people and adults in Scotland each year. I hope our sponsorship goes some way in helping the charity to support those affected by spina bifida, hydrocephalus and related conditions.”
SBH Scotland offers a lifetime commitment of support and information to all those in Scotland affected by the life-long, complex disabilities of spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus. Established in 1965, the charity now supports over 3,500 children, young people, adults, their family members and carers every year in Scotland.
