The Scottish Gin Society Stirling Distillery organizes a fundraising event in Ukraine

The Stirling Distillery is hosting a charity evening on Friday March 11 at 7 p.m. to raise funds for the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

The evening at the distillery will focus on a fundraising raffle which was launched on Friday March 4th. The distillery has approached a range of Scottish businesses for donations and has been inundated with generous prizes. So far, these include

A round of golf for 4 people Dunblane golf club,

Loch Lomond Sea Life Center “Sharks After Dark” Package,

a water ski lesson at Loch Lomond Water ski club,

four tickets to the Edinburgh Dungeon,

a trip to Stirling Distillery’s Old Smiddy Gin School for 2,

one night at the Barony Castle Hotel,

afternoon teas,

bottles of gin from Stirling Distillery and Avva Gin,

beauty vouchers and gift boxes among many other prizes.

The distillery’s general manager, Elle McCann, spoke of the event: “We are shocked and saddened by the events currently unfolding in Ukraine. We wanted to do something to help those in desperate need. We have great relationships with many businesses across Scotland and are fortunate to be a venue that can host events, so having a raffle and fundraising party made sense. We hope that as many people as possible will buy tickets and even better if people can participate in a fundraising evening this Friday.

The distillery is asking people to buy raffle tickets at £3 each via their website, with all proceeds going directly to the British Red Cross DEC Ukraine humanitarian appeal. The draw will take place on Friday evening. Register to attend the evening here.
