Burns night slipped past yesterday with the odd dram of whiskey and contemplative plate of haggis as mass events or even family gatherings were prevented by government restrictions.
That has not stopped Glasgow-headquartered Chisholm Hunter from its annual fundraising for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland that it builds around celebration of the Scottish poet.
“Happy Burns Day,” the company proclaimed through its blog and social media.
“As proud supporters of the Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland Burns Night for over 30 years, Chisholm Hunter is thrilled once again this year to be partnering with SBH Scotland and joining forces with Grant’s Foods Ltd and Endura, to bring to the world one very special hour of Robert Burns entertainment.”
Replacing a spectacular fund raising dinner, Chisholm Hunter instead encouraged its employees and customers to take part in the #WorldsBiggestBurnsSupper, which included an online auction to raise money for SBH Scotland. Chisholm Hunter donated a £2,000 necklace to the auction.
In other news from Chisholm Hunter, the company has announced that it has added IWC to the range of luxury watch brands it will sell from its Edinburgh flagship (pictured top).
