The event was in aid of LifeCare which helps elderly become independent in Stockbridge and raised £1,500.  

I can’t thank the local community enough for their support and generous donations of prizes, raffle ticket purchases and support. This event was a great opportunity to bring Stockbridge locals and business owners together to enjoy some fine food and drink in The Grange Club’s stunning surrounds while raising funds for a local charity which has just celebrated its 75th anniversary.

In excess of thirty prizes worth over £1,000 were raffled from a range of businesses including:  Bamboo Boutique, Good Brother’s, Hectors, Patisserie Florentin and The Raeburn.   

The auction of a piece of colourful abstract artwork of Arran, called ‘Sunset Coast’, which was generously donated by local Tommy Fitchett of Saorsa Art, based in Stockbridge raised an incredible £260.  The entertaining auction was conducted by local JoJo Hernandez, owner of Stockbridge’s Lilies & Dreams and the winning bid came from yet another local, Harry Crombie of Stockbridge’s property management company Crombie & Co

The Stockbridge Penguin Project

In previous years a number of businesses in Stockbridge have displayed a variety of papier mâché animals, including giraffes and elephants.  

2015 was the year of penguins and Ruth and partner Paul from Eden were at the fore-front of the Stockbridge Penguin Project, raising money for two local charities LifeCare and It’s Good to Give.  Over fifty local businesses decorated their plain papier mâché penguin, each with a dedicated ‘birthday’ and members of the public paid businesses a £1 to guess their birthday for a chance to win their penguin, with all proceeds raising over £1,000 to the dedicated charities.   As covered by STV Edinburgh.
