Come rain or shine there’s always time for The Big Scotch Beef Sizzle
One of the country’s most popular TV weather presenters, Judith Ralston, swapped forecasting for flame grilling to launch a new nation-wide fundraising initiative – The Big Scotch Beef Sizzle.
The Big Scotch Beef Sizzle, run by Scotland’s Hospices Together, is set to see a burst of BBQ activity taking place throughout Scotland during June to raise funds for hospices around the country, including St Columba’s Hospice.
Supported by Scotch Beef PGI, the The Big Scotch Beef Sizzle will encourage Scots to get steaks and burgers on the barby to raise vital funds for local hospice care.
Scotland’s Hospices Together is a national partnership of ten of Scotland’s independent hospices and the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS). The partnership aims to support and to highlight the work of hospice care in Scotland, and people who take part across Edinburgh can raise funds for St Columba’s Hospice.
Judith, who regularly presents the weather on prime-time TV, said she couldn’t think of a better way to catch up with friends and family while raising money for such a worthwhile cause.
“One of the joys of our country is the variety, and unpredictability, of our weather which means hosting a BBQ is always an adventure!
“The secret is to be prepared – pack an umbrella along with the suncream and there will be nothing to stop the fun!” said Judith.
“I would encourage everyone to get involved in the Big Scotch Beef Sizzle which is a fantastic way to support your local hospice and your local community,” she added.
