Raffle and fundraising evening Friday 11th March

Stirling Distillery sat in the shadow of Stirling Castle, is hosting a charity evening on Friday 11th March to raise money for the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

The evening within the distillery will focus on a fundraising raffle which was launched Friday 4th March. The distillery approached a range of Scottish businesses for donations and have been inundated with generous prizes. So far these include: A round of golf for 4 people Dunblane golf club, ‘Sharks After Dark’ package from the Sea Life Centre at Loch Lomond, a water ski lesson at Loch Lomond Water ski club, four tickets to Edinburgh Dungeon, a trip to Stirling Distillery’s Old Smiddy Gin school for 2, an overnight stay at Barony Castle Hotel, afternoon teas, bottles of gin from Stirling Distillery and Avva Gin, beauty vouchers and gift hampers among many other prizes. 

Distillery general manager Elle McCann spoke of the event “We have been shocked and saddened by the events currently happening in the Ukraine. We wanted to do something to help those in desperate need. We have a great relationship with many businesses across Scotland and we are fortunate to be a venue that can host events, so it made sense to run a raffle and fundraising evening. We hope as many people as possible buy tickets and even better if people can come along for an evening of fundraising this Friday.”

The distillery are 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 be made on Friday evening. Sign up to the evening here. 

If you are a business and would like to donate prizes to the raffle, please email hello@stirlingdistillery.co.uk
