Charity of the Year
Highland Business Women supports and raises funds for a chosen charity each year. Our aim is to work closely with the chosen charity, raising awareness of its cause and promoting any ongoing projects or campaigns.
We proactively raise funds for the chosen charity at raffles at each of our events, as well as at our annual Highland Business Women Awards Dinner in March.
- In 2019, we raised £5,300 for The Oxygen Works.
- In 2018, we raised £4,000 for The Elsie Normington Foundation’s Haven Project.
Charity of the Year 2020
Our chosen charity for this year is Fèis Rois, a Dingwall based charity which enables people of all ages to access, participated in and enjoy the traditional arts and Gaelic language.
With a diverse programme of activities in Ross & Cromarty, across Scotland and beyond, Fèis Rois is widely recognised as a national leader in the arts, particularly in music education.
The organisation aims to give young people and lifelong learners the opportunity to experience and engage with traditional music and Gaelic culture in a way that supports them in developing their social skills and inspires them to reach their full potential.
Revolving around the theme of 25 we want you to get creative with your challenges between Monday 9th & Saturday 14th November ending with a, virtual, silver celebration on Saturday 14th November at 6.30pm.
