On 2nd May 2013 Dyslexia Scotland attending a star studded reception at the Grand Hall in Edinburgh Castle honouring the work of Dyslexia Scotland.
We were lucky enough to be one of the First Minister’s chosen charities in his Christmas card appeal in December 2012 – the painting of the Christmas card by Elizabeth BLackadder was displayed at the reception and will be auctioned later in 2013, with proceeds shared between the 4 chosen charities including Dyslexia Scotland.
We were also delighted that an amazing £100,000 was announced at the event by the Scottish Government to help to ensure that Dyslexia Scotland can continue to achieve our goals and raise awareness of Dyslexia.’
We had a fantastic evening from being piped into the event, being entertainment by musicians Eilidh Steel and Mark Neal and mingling with our ambassadors, volunteers as well as other honoured guests. It gave us the opportunity to get our glad rags on, meet some interesting and inspiring people and of course view the wonderful treasures that the Castle has to offer.
We would like to thank everyone who came along to the event and hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. Dyslexia Scotland relies on the continued support of its volunteers, ambassadors and staff and we were so happy that we were able to share this honour with so many of them.
