We are delighted to announce that we raised £1,000 for agricultural charity The Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RSABI) at our recent Whisky Tasting Supper. The annual event, held at the Garvock House Hotel in Dunfermline, allows our farming clients to catch up after harvest time. Guests sampled specially selected malts chosen by our very own whisky connoisseur David Walker, followed by a quiz and a raffle.  

Speaking at the event was RSABI Development Officer Margo Wills who discussed the vital role her charity plays in supporting the farming community. Since 1897 RSABI has provided ‘emotional, practical and financial support to individuals and their families across the agricultural sector including farming and crofting.’

Mark Gibson who hosted the event was delighted with the amount raised adding, “I’d like to say a huge thanks to our guests for their generosity. RSABI offer a crucial lifeline to those in need within the farming community, and as Business Supporters ourselves, I urge other business owners to get involved. We are committed to raising more funds for them in the future and intend to participate in their Great Glen Challenge in 2020.”
