Highland Hospice has said thank you to a number of local businesses who helped make their first event in over 19 months a huge success.
The Kessock Bridge Abseil took place on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th September and saw more than 430 people raising an incredible £150,000 for patient care and family support across the Highlands.
Representatives from the event’s sponsors today gathered at the Hospice to receive a thank you from the charity for going above and beyond at the event and during its preparations.
Fundraiser Emma Nicol said, “We really couldn’t have held this event without the massive support we received from our sponsors Ord Industrial & Commercial Supplies, McDonald Scaffolding, Alba Traffic Management, BEAR Scotland, Highland Temporary Works Ltd, Big Bang Promotions and RNLI."
"Huge thanks to Harry Gow who supplied lunches to the team, Tesco Metro for donating tea, coffee, juice and biscuits and the North Kessock Ticket Office who kindly donated 50 per cent of their profits from over the two days."
Mrs Nicol continued, “This was a fantastic success, and the feedback we have had from everyone who participated has been really positive. We are all still on a high – it’s just so good to have our events back up and running!”
