Rox brought a touch of diamonds and thrills to a gala dinner in Edinburgh last week as it auctioned off a 7.5ct diamond bracelet, raising £8,000 for Social Bite, a Scottish charity on a mission to end homelessness in Scotland.
The award-winning British jeweller teamed up with Social Bite as it brought its annual fundraising dinner to the capital.
Malala Yousafzai, the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate, spoke at the event and her visit coincided with the launch of the charities’ 2019 campaign.
Malala follows in the footsteps of George Clooney, Leonardo Di Caprio, Michelle Obama, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex in visiting-the social enterprise charity in Scotland.
Speaking of the charity partnership ROX managing director, Kyron Keogh, remarks: “ROX is thrilled to support Social Bite and help raise funds for this amazing charity. Social Bite is on a mission to end homelessness and their creativity and passion never fails to get people talking. The work they do at a grassroots level across Scotland is inspirational and has never been more vital.
“I am delighted that we are able to pledge our support to raise money for this incredible cause.”
Social Bite was founded by Josh Littlejohn and Alice Thomson in 2012 as a sandwich shop in Rose Street, Edinburgh, and was set up to operate as a social business giving all profits to good causes. Today they operate several sites across Scotland as well as The Social Bite Academy which enables employment of people affected by homelessness.
