Members of a committee of volunteers from the Highland Construction and Property Industry swapped hard hats for crash helmets at Inverness Kart Raceway recently, to hand over cheques totalling £10,200 to charities from Inverness and Ross-shire.
The cash was raised through a raffle and auction at the sixth annual Highland Construction and Property Dinner which was held in the Kingsmills Hotel in Inverness at the end of last year.
Three charities were chosen to benefit from the fundraiser: Day 1, a mentoring scheme which teams young people up with the support they need to improve self-confidence and improve their education and career prospects, and which operates Inverness Kart Raceway as a social enterprise; the Rheumatology Unit at Dingwall Hospital; and Inverness -based suicide prevention charity, Mikeysline.
The Highland Construction and Property dinner is a collaborative charity event involving the CIOB, RICS and Scottish Building Federation.
