Charity Christmas jumper launched by Scotch Lamb
A new Scotch Lamb PGI Christmas jumper in aid of charity has been unveiled.
The jumpers will be sold in aid of RSABI, the charity that provides financial assistance, support and advice to people who have worked in land-based occupations in Scotland. A total of £5 from each sale will go to the charity.
Carol McLaren, head of communications with Quality Meat Scotland, said: “The jumpers are being sold in aid of an excellent charity, which helps hundreds of rural people every year who encounter difficult times,” she said.
“We hope Scotch Lambassadors around the country – farmers, butchers and others – will wear them with pride this Christmas and help remind everyone of what a fabulous meal Scotch Lamb is to share with friends and family over the festive period!”
Paul Tinson, RSABI development manager, thanked Scotch Lamb for the support: “In these increasingly tough times, RSABI is delighted to receive a little extra support in this innovative manner at this time of the year.
“We hope this activity will also help to increase awareness of the support the RSABI can offer and encourage people facing difficulties to contact us to seek the assistance available for them.”
To order a jumper, priced at £15 plus postage, visit the shop on the Quality Meat Scotland website www.qmscotland.co.uk/shop.
