Chamber members collaborate on charity venison pies for land workers


19th March 2021

Two Chamber members have collaborated on a tasty charity initiative to highlight the plight of forgotten land workers.

Highland Game and Scott Brothers Butchers wanted to raise funds for deer stalkers working in Tayside who have been impacted by Covid-19.

Stalkers and ghillies have missed out on important income with hunting and shooting parties unable to travel to Scotland due to the pandemic.

Highland Game, one of the key customers, has seen its volumes drop due to the closure of the hospitality industry, although it also has a strong retail business.

It will supply venison free of charge to Scott Brothers who will use it to create pies, which go on sale today.

All proceeds will go to the Gamekeepers Wildlife Trust charity.
