Why we need your help

We need to raise £2 million to support the preparations for the 2021 Royal Highland Show and to allow us to continue our charitable work this year.

We need your help.

Our principal charitable event, the Royal Highland Show has a very special place in all of our hearts. Its cancellation this year left a gaping hole and, as we grieve its loss, our dearest hopes for next year are tempered with the uncertainty facing all such events, and the ongoing financial impact of the pandemic on the Society.

Our much-loved Show will celebrate 200 years in 2022 and we must do all we can to ensure it survives. The Royal Highland Show is the flagship of our charitable mission to protect and promote Scottish agriculture and rural communities, for everyone in Scotland. Right now, RHASS is facing a £6 million shortfall in income, a shortfall which puts the future of the Royal Highland Show and all of our charitable activities at risk, at a time when our rural communities and the industry need us most.

We have taken urgent and difficult decisions to cut costs, but this is not enough. The uncertainty around Scotland’s events business continues to impact on income, while we must soon begin to invest in the preparations for the 2021 Show. It is likely that in 2021 we will have to make some changes to the Show as we know it, but we plan to do all in our power to ensure it can go ahead, while acknowledging the certain prospect of additional costs and fewer visitors in the aftermath of the pandemic.

Our appeal target of £2 million* equates to £125 for every one of our 16,000 membership.

We value enormously the ongoing support and loyalty of all of our members and understand that for some, a donation will not be possible at this time. Every donation, whatever the amount, is important in helping us to reach our target and if you are able to help, we would appreciate this greatly.

Your support will make a real difference.

Thank you

*If this appeal raises an amount greater than its target of £2 million, we may allocate surplus funds to general activities.
