CHARITIES TO BENEFIT FROM ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL HIGHLANDS AND ISLANDS PRESS BALL AND MEDIA AWARDS
Four charities will benefit from the 34th annual edition of the Highlands and Islands Press Ball, the only event that brings together industry colleagues from across a huge and dispersed region.
Nearly 250 media representatives, politicians and heads of public and private organisations attended the event on February 3 at the Kingsmills Hotel, Inverness.
The ball, and associated Highlands and Islands Media Awards, attracted journalists from Shetland to Argyll and from Moray to the Outer Hebrides serving print, broadcast and online media.
Principal sponsor of the evening was Diageo, with additional support from Statkraft, Chivas Brothers, the National Union of Journalists, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Hub North Scotland, the Kane Partnership, Highland Tourism and Bord an Gàidhlig.
The event raised more than £4,000 which will benefit four local charities – Highland Hospice, Centred (formerly Birchwood Highland), Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) and the Liam Colgan Music Fund
The ball has now raised £120,000 for good causes, with all the money staying in the Highlands and Islands.
Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the event. We look forward to seeing you again in 2024.
