Recognition for Royal Highland Educational Trust (RHET) at Prestigious Rural Awards
The Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET) scooped the Education award at last night’s Rural Awards held at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh.
Over 300 industry figures attended the glittering event that showcased the best in rural business.
Amongst the prestigious winners was RHET, The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland’s (RHASS) education charity, which takes children from the classroom into the countryside to teach them where their food comes from.
The judges paid tribute to the charity’s ‘inspiring learning programme, defined education outcomes and clear strategy for growth’.
Speaking about the award, RHET Manager, Katrina Barclay, said: “I am immensely proud of this award as it pays tribute to the incredible work of our farmer volunteers, who give their time freely to create a greater understanding and appreciation of farming in everyday life. We will continue our work with an added spring in our step knowing that what we do has been recognised for the value it brings.”
