Johnston Carmichael named as title sponsor for Scottish Curling Junior Championships

Scottish accountancy Johnston Carmichael has been named by the Royal Caledonian Curling Club as principal sponsors of the Scottish Curling Junior Championships, 2018.

The event takes place from January 24th – 28th at Curl Aberdeen, the city’s purpose-built facility. The accountancy and business advisory firm have already been announced as the headline sponsor of the 2018 World Junior Curling Championships, hosted in the Granite City in March; and this double partnership further strengthens a clear commitment to our sport, the city and Scotland’s young curlers.

Niall Farquharson, managing partner of Johnston Carmichael’s Aberdeen office, explains why the firm took the decision to get involved: “We’re thrilled to support the 2018 Scottish Curling Junior Championships, the highlight of Scotland’s junior competitive curling calendar, where the teams will battle it out for the opportunity to represent Scotland at the World Junior Curling Championships which are set to take place in Aberdeen next March.

We’re excited to play our part in helping to honour this progressive sport by engaging our people, clients and the community in this major sporting event.”

A sentiment echoed by Bruce Crawford, CEO of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club: “We are delighted to be working with Johnston Carmichael as we stage the Scottish Championships at Curl Aberdeen in January, and of course the World Championships at the same venue in March. Curling is a sport based on technical and tactical skills alongside strategy and integrity which reflect the professional credentials Johnston Carmichael have used to make their business a leading firm in Scotland.”
