HR Professionals from across the country helped raise more than £7,500 for Royal Blind with a glitzy awards dinner.

Winners smile at the camera at the HR awardsAround 770 people attended the HR Network National Awards 2017 at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow in November.

HR Network is a family-run publication that shares HR news and professional information with its subscribers.

Their annual gala dinner is designed to recognise, acknowledge and reward the champions of the Scottish HR professionals.

The organisation kindly chose Royal Blind as their charity of choice to support during the evening. A raffle raised a grand total £7,587, all of which will be donated to the Royal Blind School’s courtyard appeal.

Fundraisers are helping the Royal Blind School redevelop its outdoor courtyard spaces.

Senior Fundraiser, Kirsty Smith, said: “We are very grateful to HR Network for selecting Royal Blind as their charity of choice for the HR Network National Awards. The gala dinner was a fantastic night and we are very grateful to everyone who supported us on the night. All of the money raised from this event will go towards renovating the Royal Blind School’s outdoor spaces as part of the Courtyard Appeal.”
