THE PARTY’S OVER…..
Interim findings from the inquiry into this year’s Highlands and Islands Press Ball and Media Awards have revealed there were no major complaints.
The ball was attended by some 270 influential journalists, PR managers, politicians and heads of public and private sector organisations.
The event raised an estimated £3,600 from an online auction and charity casino, raffle and tombola held on the night. This money will benefit four charities - Alzheimer Scotland, Highland Homeless Trust, HUG Action for Mental Health and the Crocus Child Bereavement Support Service.
Our thanks to the Drumossie Hotel and our sponsors Diageo, Lucid PR, BT Scotland, Fujitsu, Chivas, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, the National Union of Journalists and Bòrd na Gàidhlig.
Thanks to co-organiser Lara Gilchrist and also to Gordon Fyfe, who chaired the media awards, and Vic Cameron, Louise Kerr and Iain MacDonald for their work on the awards.
We look forward to seeing you all in 2016
