FARM ACCOUNTANT Thomson Cooper raised £1000 for agricultural charity the Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Institution at its recent Whisky Tasting Supper.

The annual event, held at the Garvock House Hotel in Dunfermline, allows the firm's farming clients to catch up after harvest time – and sample specially selected malts chosen by managing partner and whisky connoisseur David Walker.

Speaking at the event was RSABI development officer Margo Wills, who discussed the role the charity plays in the farming community, providing ‘emotional, practical and financial' support to individuals and their families.

Thomson Cooper partner Mark Gibson, who hosted the event, was delighted with the amount raised: “I’d like to say a huge thanks to our guests for their generosity. RSABI offer a crucial lifeline to those in need within the farming community, and as Business Supporters ourselves, I urge other business owners to get involved. We are committed to raising more funds for them in the future and we intend to participate in their Great Glen Challenge in 2020.”
