Journalists invite to charity social

JOURNALISTS are being invited to better get to know the work of some of Scotland’s biggest charities – and to improve their contacts within them – in the social setting of a drinks evening.

Charity PR Network – comprising press officers from all of Scotland’s major charities – is hosting the event a week on Wednesday, in Edinburgh.

The network includes representatives from, among others, Children 1st, Barnardos, Capability Scotland, Oxfam, Amnesty, the Red Cross, Friends of the Earth, RSPB and WWF.

For more information, contact Gavin Yates, based at the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations, on 0131 474 8046.
