Chisholm Hunter raises £46,000 for charity

Multiple retailer Chisholm Hunter has raised over £46,000 for specialist charity, Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) at its annual ‘A Question of Burns’ event.

Sponsoring the event for the ninth consecutive year, 400 guests joined Chisholm Hunter and SBH Scotland for its traditional black tie Burns Supper fundraiser at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow. Former Scottish international rugby captain and TV sports presenter, Andy Nicol hosted the evening, with invited guests enjoying an evening of speeches, poetry, four courses of Scottish fayre and a quiz on Rabbie Burns.

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 ten designer watches for the quiz prizes.

Harry Brown managing director at Chisholm Hunter said: “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.”

Deborah Roe fundraising director at SBH Scotland added: “A Question of Burns is always a highlight in our events calendar. We’re thrilled with the success of the evening, and it is fantastic to receive the continued support from Chisholm Hunter who literally add sparkle to the event.

“We are very grateful to our sponsors, without whom the evening would not have been possible. The money raised has made a huge difference to our annual fundraising targets, allowing us to provide specialist services and projects to the 3,500 children, young people, adults and their families we support every year in Scotland.”
