A clay target competition held at Stratherrick Clay Target Club has raised an amazing £2341.30 for Highland Hospice.
The event which was held on Saturday 14th April was a huge success and included lunch, a raffle and an auction.
Organiser Lesley Matheson, Licensing Administrator for Police Scotland, said, “We held this event for the first time last year, to help Strictly Inverness competitor Andy Hill with his fundraising. It was such a great day that we decided to go for it again this year.”
“To boost funds, we had two hampers as raffle prizes – one at Police Scotland and one in Inverarnie Stores. These raised over £200.”
“Huge thanks to our generous event sponsors AM Ross Sand & Gravel. Highland Hospice is a cause very dear to them, as their wife and mother Patricia Ross sadly passed away in the Hospice last year.”
“Thanks also to the Loch Ness Rural Communities Group for all their support in helping us on the day, and to everyone who kindly participated in the competition or bought raffle tickets."
“We really are just delighted to have raised this much for Highland Hospice which provides such vital support to those in need of its care.”
Highland Hospice Community Fundraiser Carrie Macdonald said, “The amount raised by Lesley and her team is absolutely incredible and, on behalf of everyone at Highland Hospice, I would like to say a heartfelt thank you for this wonderful effort.”
