Successful charity race night for Mikeysline
Our Inverness office have chosen Mikeysline as their charity partner for 2019 and kick started fundraising efforts with a race night on Friday 26th April at Mercure Hotel, raising an incredible £2,300.
Mikeysline and The Hive Project provide much needed support and advice to those in the Highlands, including a text helpline and the Highlands' first out-of-hours mental health crisis centre. They aim to reduce social isolation and help vulnerable people maintain their mental health.

As part of the race night, there was both a horse and jockey prize for each race, and winners walked away with anything from a chocolate hamper to a round of golf for four.
For those that didn’t do as well in the races, there were still plenty of chances to win on the night with a round of vintage style Heads & Tails as well as an auction.
Graeme Watson from Mikeysline said: "We were delighted to attend the Race Night and were overwhelmed by the generosity of all who attended. The amount raised was amazing.
"Our sincere gratitude to everyone in the Inverness office of Digby Brown who helped organise the event, particularly Lauren, Sarah, Sam and David. We look forward to working with Digby Brown on future events."
“Thanks to all of the fantastic local businesses who donated prizes and the attendees for making it such a success. The Race Night raised a phenomenal total for our charity partner Mikeysline, which Digby Brown will now double. We hope to see you all at the next one.”
