The Touch of Tartan Ball celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. 

The annual event, held at the Aberdeen Beach Ballroom, was launched on Tuesday, at Grandhome House, home of Patron of the Ball, David Paton.

The event was attended by sponsors, committee members and special guests, all of whom were looking forward to a spectacular night with Laurence and Jackie Llewellyn-Bowen. 

Star attraction at the launch was the Jamieson & Carry necklace, which hangs from an 18-carat white gold wire with white and yellow gold oval balls, and is bound to attract a number of bids at the event.

Chairman of the Ball, Jane Armour, said: “We’re delighted that Jamieson & Carry have chosen to support the Touch of Tartan Ball once again. 

Our thanks must also go to our sponsors, our other auction donors and of course, those who attend on the evening to raise funds for one of Scotland’s leading child welfare charities, CHILDREN 1ST. 

“The money raised at the Touch of Tartan Ball is donated to the services run by CHILDREN 1ST in Aberdeen City and Shire, in the homes and communities that help children and families every day.”

The Touch of Tartan ball is on course to reach the £1.5 million milestone raised for the charity, formerly the RSSPCC.

The event will take place at the Aberdeen Beach Ballroom, Aberdeen on Friday, November 30.
