Digby Brown were delighted to organise a fundraising dinner for the Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT), raising over £21,000 on the night to help children with acquired brain injuries.

This adds to the quarter of a million pounds already raised by Digby Brown for the charity.

The black tie fundraising dinner was held at Edinburgh’s Balmoral Hotel on Friday 25th August 2017, providing a wonderful backdrop for the evening.

Guests took part in a raffle and silent auction with prizes including an overnight stay for two at The Balmoral, corporate hospitality at Scottish Football Club, sports camera and highland cow painting on canvas by Craig Semple.
