Luxury jeweller Chisholm Hunter has collaborated with specialist charity, Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland), to try and raise as much money as possible for the charity’s 25th Anniversary Burns Supper.
The event has raised over £1 million since it launched in 1990, and Chisholm Hunter will be contributing a white gold and diamond necklace to the cause.
The evening on 28 January 2016 consists of a traditional Burns Supper with a quiz and some celebrity appearances. Such guests over the years have included Sir Alex Ferguson, Alex McLeish, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, Duncan Bannatyne OBE, Jonathon Watson and Linda Ormiston OBE.
It’s the eighth consecutive year that the retailer has been a sponsor and, on top of the necklace, it will also be contributing 10 fashion watches as prizes for the winners of the Burn’s quiz.
Deborah Roe, fundraising director at SBH Scotland, said: “We are extremely grateful for the continued support from Chisholm Hunter. Their donations allow us to add real sparkle to the magic of the event.”
Chisholm Hunter’s managing director, Harry Brown, said: “On behalf of Chisholm Hunter, it’s an honour to continue our support of Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland, this dedicated charity whose hard work is making a significant difference to the charity members and their families.”
Spina bifida is a fault in the spinal column where vertebrae do not form completely, leaving a gap causing problems with the nervous system, and hydrocephalus is a condition where increased pressure on the brain can cause social, emotional, cognitive and behavioural difficulties.
