Is­landers dig deep to help refugees

The Oban Times - - News -

TIREE res­i­dents have so far man­aged to raise £700 with more money and ma­te­rial do­na­tions ar­riv­ing ev­ery­day for the Syr­ian refugee cri­sis.

While the weather was par­tic­u­larly bad on a fundrais­ing walk, with winds gust­ing up 40mph, is­landers man­aged to gather and walk Gott Bay.

Is­lan­der Han­nah Wright said: ‘For such a small is­land the re­sponse has been won­der­ful. Peo­ple re­ally do want their voices heard even from a re­mote is­land in the At­lantic.’
