Each year we select four local charities to support from our fundraising efforts, which include an auction, raffle and tombola.
To date, we have donated more than £103,000 to a wide range of organisations, with 100 per cent of the money remaining in the Highlands and Islands.
All this money is raised on the night so, effectively, the total has been reached in little more than two-and-a-half days.
The 2020 charities will be announced shortly. In addition to supporting local organisations, the Press Ball will again make a donation to The Journalists’ Charity which distributes grants and other forms of financial assistance to those in urgent need.
