carnival donation

Sheriff Colin Scott Mackenzie, chairman of Urras Eaglais na h-Aoidhe receives a cheque for £300 from the hands of Ms. Claire Macleod, President of the Stornoway Rotary Club acting on behalf of the Stornoway Carnival Committee, who divided up their profit from their 2015 activities amongst a number of local charities. Sheriff Mackenzie said that the Urras is very delighted to be accounted one of their charities. It is very heartening when organisations such as the Carnival Committee think that we are worth supporting though we may not ordinarily fall into their sights. We are very grateful to them and can assure them that the money will be well spent in preserving an important part of our island heritage.
