Chisholm Hunter has helped to raise more than £50,000 for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland at a charity Burns Night dinner.
Chisholm Hunter donated a diamond necklet, diamond pendant, ten luxury watches and two nights at Chisholm Hunter’s luxury suites in Princes Street overlooking Edinburgh Castle, as prizes. One premium piece was also auctioned off for over £3000.
For nearly three decades, SBH Scotland’s annual evening in honour of the poet has been one of Glasgow’s most successful Burns supper events.
Since it launched in 1991 the charity has raised over £1 million for children, young people and their families affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus.
Harry Brown, managing director at Chisholm Hunter, was inspired to support the charity after attending the Burns supper as a guest. The following year, the retailer signed up as the presenting sponsor.
“SBH Scotland carries out some amazing work, which makes a significant difference to the lives of over 3,500 children, young people and adults across the country each year. I hope our sponsorship goes some way in helping the charity to support those who benefit from their fantastic services,” says Harry Brown, managing director of Chisholm Hunter.
