Scottish GO Awards raises £2,000


On 23rd October 2018, the Scottish GO Awards celebrated the very best in the procurement industry.  As their nominated charity, The Realising Dreams Foundation took the opportunity to bring the work of our charity to life with speeches from two of our recent applicants – Jessica and Danny Robson – who are both rising stars in Scottish badminton. Their story was inspiring and struck a chord with the audience.

We’re delighted to announced the generous donations will boost our fundraising totals by £2,000 allowing us to realise even more dreams…
