Last month, the Royal Highland Education Trusts' (RHET) Forth Valley district raised a grand total of £3000 to help towards the continual education of food and farming within schools across the country.

Held at Airth Castle Hotel, in Falkirk, the event welcomed 150 guests who were entertained by The RHET choir and guest speaker Sandy Wilkie, as well as a fashion show of preloved clothes provided by Ooshasc by Mel Anderson.

The money raised and will be used to subsidise transport to allow the pupils of Forth Valley to visit farms and learn where their food comes from, and how it is produced.

Lynne Reid RHET Forth Valley Chairperson commented: “It really was a fantastic, fun afternoon and so good to finally be able to catch up properly with friends and supporters. The funds raised will ensure that we can continue to subsidise transport to farms and farm events for all the children of Forth Valley. RHET visits give young people a chance to see how their food is produced and meet the farmers who have the ever-increasing challenge of meeting the demand for affordable high quality food”.
