It was my great pleasure to be able to hand over the money raised at the Fife Women Rock Awards to Fife Women’s Aid.
We raised a whopping £800 – how amazing is that?!
Little did I know that it was the start of another epic week in the Queendom!
The total was raised from a percentage of ticket sales and donations made at the awards, which celebrated unsung, everyday women working hard in their communities and local business.
Fife Women’s Aid is a charity which supports women, children and young people who have experience of Domestic Abuse in Fife.
I’m delighted to be able to hand over the donation to such a worthy charity, knowing that the money will be used to help support people in the local community.
I’d like to thank everyone who bought a ticket to the awards and donated so generously on the night to help raise such a great amount.
Kate McCormack, manager, Fife Women’s Aid, told us: “This money will be put to very good use and we would like to thank Cara and Annie for choosing us as the charity they wanted to support.
“We rely on donations from the local community to help us provide vital services and are very grateful for any money we receive.”
And as if that wasn’t enough, on Friday I found out that the awards had made it onto a national stage!
David Torrance MSP raised a motion in the Scottish Parliament to recognise the work Annie and I did and to congratulate us on the success of the event.
It’s not often I’m lost for words, but I have to admit this did it!
Not only am I humbled to be recognised in this way, I’m delighted that the businesses and women involved got the recognition nationally that they deserve.
Isn’t it amazing what we can achieve when we work together – for me, this all is another example of the power of community.
What can we do next?
Long live the Queendom,
