Annual Review 2011/12: Fundraising
2011 saw an increase in our community fundraising activities and there was a number of highlights:
- The Highland Poppy Run in Inverness ran for its third year running and raised £6,000 with a new support group being created.
- A Summer Antiques Evening, organised by two supporters, was held in July at Stirling Castle, raising £3000.
- The Ride across Britain cycling challenge saw some dedicated fundraising by two supporters over £16,000 was raised.
- A Boxing evening, held as part of the famous St Andrews Sporting Clubs programme of charity evenings, saw Poppyscotland as the beneficiary. This raised £8,000 and brought us to the attention of a whole new group of supporters.
A total of £338,000 was raised by Community Fundraising events during 2011/12.
