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.

Fèis Rois
 

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.
