“The AFBE-UK Scotland Gala was a very inspiring event. I was impressed not only by the calibre of people I met, many of whom held high positions of responsibility; but by the diversity of the team.”Patrick Clarke OBE, Director, UKPN (2014)

The Gala also provides an excellent opportunity to support the work of other local charities in Scotland such as Archway (2014), Befriend a Child  (2016) and the Music Hall Transformation (2018).
