Date announced for Scottish Transaid Dinner 2024
The road transport industry in Scotland has confirmed plans to hold a second Scottish Transaid Dinner, which will take place on the evening of 12 September 2024 at the MacDonald Inchyra Hotel near Grangemouth.
It follows the inaugural dinner in September 2022 which was attended by more than 200 people and raised over £100,000 – marking the largest sum of money ever collected for Transaid on a single night, through ticket sales, sponsorships and a charity auction.
Lynsey Craik (nee Mitchell), Business Support Manager at John Mitchell Haulage & Warehousing, is once again leading organisation of the event, with support from Nicola Robertson (nee Malcolm), Corporate Events Manager at Malcolm Group. Lynsey says: “We were so grateful to everyone who supported our first event, and we’re hoping this year’s dinner will be even bigger and better.”
Joan Aitken, former Scottish Traffic Commissioner, and now Chair of Transaid, says: “The first Scottish Transaid Dinner demonstrated a phenomenal show of support towards those in sub-Saharan Africa who do not have the benefits of safe, available, and sustainable transport. Lynsey and Nicola set the bar incredibly high in 2022, and we are so grateful they are doing this for Transaid again!”
Entertainment already confirmed for the evening includes award-winning Scottish comedian Ray Bradshaw – who will be performing a daily show at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Tickets for the dinner are priced at £100 per person, with tables of 10 available. For ticket sales and sponsorship enquiries please contact Lynsey, via ScottishTransaidDinner@hotmail.com.
