The winner was announced earlier in the month and the winning ticket was 140, belonging to Kathryn Marwick.

Even with the team working at home due to COVID-19 an impressive £1000 was raised for the charity.

Mikeysline and The Hive are a wonderful charity that helps people across the Highlands who suffer with chronic illness and provide support to those with poor mental health. They aim to change the stigma around mental health and want to open the conversation on mental health in an engaging manner.

The charity run a text line which ensures anonymity for those that reach out for help. As well as The Hive Project which is an out of hours mental health crisis centre located in Inverness city centre. Both of these services hope to reduce social isolation and provide support to vulnerable people whenever they need it.

Sam Cowie from the Inverness office said “Digby Brown Inverness are delighted to have raised the sum of £1000 with the hamper raffle in aid of our local office charities, Mikeysline and The Hive Project. Both charities do a fantastic job supporting and providing a lifeline, to people in desperate situations in and around Inverness. Thank you to all who bought tickets, and of course thanks also to all of the individuals and businesses who donated the fantastic prizes.”
