More than 730 people attended the event, now in its 18th year, and raised £150,000 to help children, families and young people this winter.

Unity Trust Bank was Event Partner for the evening, hosted by radio and TV presenter Peter Martin of PLZ Soccer, and guests enjoyed a music trivia quiz, dinner, a grand auction and a live performance by The Hoosiers.

Scott Hutchinson, Relationship Manager at Unity Trust Bank, said: “Never Mind The Business is one of the highlights in the Scottish business calendar and raises vital funds for some of Scotland’s most vulnerable families.

“As a socially-motivated bank, Unity’s mission is to create a better society. We’ve been a proud supporter of this event since 2019. We know the huge difference it makes to the lives of local communities.”

Money raised from the event will go directly to The Action for Children Crisis Fund. It provides emergency grants across the charity’s services. The money will help struggling families with food, utility bills and other essentials during what is expected to be a stressful winter.

Paul Carberry, Action for Children’s Director for Scotland, said: “Our 18th annual Never Mind the Business was another memorable night. Most importantly, it raised much-needed funds. This money will make a real and immediate difference to the children and families we work with.

“Action for Children is working relentlessly on all fronts. We’re helping to provide the necessary support for the most vulnerable children and families. This is particularly important during this especially difficult time with the cost of living crisis.

“Our own Crisis Fund provides emergency grants to those in desperate need of support. It has been an ongoing and crucial lifeline to so many vulnerable families during the last couple of years. The money raised from this event will all go directly to this crucial fund.”
