Enchanted Forest Community Trust announces 2019 charity partners
The Enchanted Forest Community Trust, organisers of Scotland's premier sound and light show, has announced the three charities to benefit from this year's event.
Bumblebee Conservation Trust, PKAVs and Guide Dogs Scotland (Perth & Kinross) have been chosen as the official charity partners for 2019. These organisations will not only benefit financially but will be promoted throughout the award-winning event's month-long run.
Returning to Highland Perthshire this October, the Enchanted Forest is embarking on its 18th year lighting up the trees and creating magic in Faskally Wood, Pitlochry. Re-inventing itself year-on-year, the theme for this year's event is still under wraps, but visitors can expect the winning combination of original music and captivating visuals which the Enchanted Forest is renowned for.
Over 80,000 visitors entered the Enchanted Forest for last year's sold-out show Of The Wild. Bringing an estimated £7 million to the local economy annually, tickets have already been available on pre-sale to previous customers and with tickets due to go on general sale very soon, customers are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
Ian Sim, Chairman of The Enchanted Forest Community Trust, said:
"The Enchanted Forest Community Trust is delighted to be working with these three key charities who each do remarkable work in their respective fields. We hope that the Trust's support will provide each of the charities with an additional platform to promote their work to a large audience in The Enchanted Forest."
Gill Perkins, CEO of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, said:
"We rely on the generosity and support of others in order to deliver our science, conservation and outreach activities, so we are absolutely thrilled to be one of the chosen charities for this years' Enchanted Forest event. Your support will have a huge impact on the Trust, allowing us to make a positive difference to bumblebees and our society that depends on them for our food, health and wellbeing."
Paul Graham, Chief Executive of PKAVs, said:
"We in PKAVS are delighted to be chosen as one of the official charities to benefit from this year's Enchanted Forest. The Forest is a highlight of the events calendar in Perthshire and for PKAVS to be recognised by the organisers of such a successful event is an honour. We in PKAVS work across Perth & Kinross enhancing lives and connecting communities, from unpaid carers, young and old, to people recovering from mental ill health, from ethnic minority communities to the broader third sector, we work with people to give them that little bit of help in their lives when they need it most. We are extremely grateful to be recognised by The Enchanted Forest knowing that being associated with such a high-profile event will help us raise awareness of PKAVS and the work we do."
Kyla McVicar, business development manager at Guide Dogs, said:
"We are absolutely delighted to be chosen as one of The Enchanted Forest's charities this year. We offer a range of mobility services for both adults and children with sight loss, and we currently support around 500 guide dog partnerships in Scotland. Each guide dog costs around £55,000 throughout the course of its lifetime, and the generous support of The Enchanted Forest will help us ensure more people living with sight loss, and their families, can live life to the full."
This year's Enchanted Forest will run from October 3 - November, 2019 and tickets will go on sale to the public later this month.
