Rothiemurchus policy is to prioritise support charities that specifically benefit or deliver services to people living and working in Badenoch and Strathspey.
We are delighted to be supporting ‘ Maggie’s Highlands’ and ‘Badenoch & Strathspey Foodbank’ as our main charities over the last three years.
Rothiemurchus receives numerous requests from organisations seeking support for worthwhile causes. We would love to support each and every one of these but as we are a business we need to ‘draw a line’.
We do however understand the challenges facing fundraisers and we have a Charity Policy to accommodate the high volume of requests in a way that is fair and manageable.
Selection of our main Charity(s):
We support up to two main Charities where all money raised from charity events and collection cans, will go to our selected Charity.
The period will run from 1st September each year for three years. Nominations for charities are to be submitted in writing to Johnnie Grant, The Dell Office, Inverdruie, Rothiemurchus, by Aviemore, PH22 1QP Johnnie, James and Philippa will ask our team their view on applications, assess the nominations and decide on the successful charities. The decision will be final; the choice of Charity will be posted on our web site. However, unsuccessful applicants will not receive reasons why they were not selected.
Requests will be considered from other organisations raising money for charity to collect money at various times throughout the year.
Every year Rothiemurchus will make available 12 hampers or vouchers, each to the value of £30, to local groups raising funds for local causes within a 20 mile radius from the Rothiemurchus Centre. These will be restricted to 2 per quarter with an additional 4 being made available in the quarter October to December each year.
Four special prizes – (one per quarter), each with a value of £90 e.g. activity vouchers or a combination of Rothiemurchus Farm shop / Druie / Activities will also be made available during the year for organisations that prioritise support charities that specifically benefit or deliver services to people living and working in Badenoch and Strathspey or promote activities that will benefit Badenoch & Strathspey.
