Members of the Scottish agricultural industry raised nearly £4,000 for charity at NFU Scotland’s annual dinner.
The fixture, which took place at the Raddison Blu Hotel in Glasgow, was attended by more than 500 people.
Guests donations, which totalled £3,912, were split equally between rural charity RSABI and the Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET).
John Kinnaird from RSABI said: “Demand for our services is increasing and NFU Scotland members are helping us to help those in real need.
“RSABI provides general support as well as financial assistance. Our helpline is available from 7am to 11pm, seven days a week. Call 0300 111 4166. If you know someone that needs help, put them in touch.”
Katrina Barclay from RHET thanked the union members and dinner guests for their donations.
She said: “We are fortunate to have the dedicated support from hundreds of volunteers from the farming community to offer visits to working farms and classroom talks all of which are free of charge to school children across Scotland.
“For us to secure our running costs, which are in excess of £180k each year, we rely on donations, sponsorship and grants of all sizes. Thank you again for this generous donation.”
