Moray retailer Brodie Countryfare in Forres has bagged more than £18,000 to support babies, children and families in the north of Scotland.

Since 2014, the staff at the outlet and restaurant have raised thousands of pounds for The Archie Foundation through their carrier bag initiative.

Following the introduction of Scotland’s single use carrier bag charge in October 2014, Brodie Countryfare has collected all the money from 5p or 10p bag sales, with all proceeds going directly to the charity.

Impressed by the remarkable efforts of The Archie Foundation team in Aberdeen, Brodie Countryfare selected Archie as their charity of choice to help support the creation of the Highland Children’s Unit at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness.

The proceeds from the sale of bags raised £14,124.67, while a fashion show and the sale of Christmas cards raised a further £4,022.26.

Sarah Kinlin, communications and marketing manager at Brodie Countryfare, said:

“At Brodie Countryfare, we are delighted to have raised over £18,000 in support of The Archie Foundation’s initiative in the Highlands.

“It’s heartening to see our community come together to contribute to such a worthwhile cause, and we are grateful for the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need.”

The funds generated from the bag initiative will play a crucial role in supporting The Archie Foundation’s essential work, providing assistance to babies, children and families at the Highland Children’s Unit at Raigmore Hospital, as well as the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital and Tayside Children’s Hospital in Dundee.

Zoe Grant, regional fundraising officer at The Archie Foundation in Inverness, said:

“We are truly grateful for the ongoing support from Brodie Countryfare.

“Their dedication to our cause over years has been instrumental in helping us bring essential services to babies, children and families in the Highlands.

“At The Archie Foundation we see so many businesses helping raise money in unique ways for babies, children and families going through treatment at Raigmore Hospital and around Scotland.

“It’s great to see Brodie Countryfare has pulled it out the bag for a successful fundraiser,” she continued.

Located just a few minutes from Brodie Castle, Brodie Countryfare is an exclusive shopping experience in Moray with an award-winning restaurant.
