Donation to Ealain Tìr a’Mhurain, £500

30/03/11 Go Back

£500 was donated to Fèis Tìr A’Mhurain, which runs every year in South Uist for children aged 5 to 18 yrs, with approximately 100 participants. It provides an opportunity to children to learn or develop skills in musical instruments such as clarsach, fiddle, guitar, pipes/chanter, keyboard, accordion and drums as well as media skills, drama and shinty. The Fèis relies totally on volunteers and is one of the only completely gaelic Fèisean. The donation is towards the running costs of the Fèis, which include instrument hire and travel and accommodation for visiting tutors.
