Scots are being asked to host fabulous fundraisers in aid of a social care charity.

From breakfast bashes to evening dances, Fizz Fridays encourage people to have fun while raising much-needed cash for Cornerstone’s Quality of Life programme, which aims to transform the lives of disabled people.

Events can be held throughout November, with information and support available through the charity’s website.

Some suggestions include pamper nights, fashion shows, or popcorn and Prosecco evenings.

More ambitious Fizz Friday events could include a dance or afternoon of tea and cupcakes at a local community hall or hotel featuring four special cocktails created for the charity by bartenders from Malmaison Aberdeen.

Lisa Duthie, Cornerstone’s director of corporate relations and fundraising, said: “Fizz Friday is an excellent opportunity to enjoy time with friends whilst also raising funds for a worthy cause.

“With a bit of imagination, anything can become a Fizz Friday event, whether in your own home or at a public facility such as a community centre, village hall or school.”

Cornerstone provides care and support services for more than 2000 adults, young people, and children across 17 Scottish council areas who live with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and other support needs.

All funds raised will go towards providing access to essential specialised equipment, services and activities for the charity’s service users.
