The cash is to be split between Scotland Lights up Malawi and Renewable World – two charities which use renewable energy to improve healthcare and education in Africa, Asia and South America.
As an example, the cash will allow Scotland Lights up Malawi to buy 2,419 solar lamps, helping 15,194 people and saving Malawian families £313,861.
Ruth Milliken, Scotland Lights up Malawi Fundraising Coordinator, said: “The Scotland Lights up Malawi campaign was honoured to have been invited to be one of the charities being supported at this year’s Scottish Green Energy Awards.
“The amount collected was a testament to the generosity of those who attended, and those who donated can be sure that their money will transform lives in Malawi through something as simple and basic as clean, safe and sustainable lighting.”
There’s still time to make a donation for Christmas:
