Ceilidh or­gan­is­ers step in with £500

The Oban Times - - News -

BUN- SGOIL Ghàidhlig Loch Abar re­ceived a gen­er­ous do­na­tion on Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 3 from funds raised at Kil­mallie com­mu­nity cen­tre’s Hog­manay ceilidh.

Joyce Mathers, one of the ceilidh or­gan­is­ers, pre­sented pupils El­iza Mof­fat and Ar­ran Stephen with a cheque for £ 500, with the same amount be­ing given to Kil­mallie com­mu­nity cen­tre.

Joyce said the ceilidh was sold out and when asked about why the Gaelic school was cho­sen to re­ceive the do­na­tion this year she said: ‘ We try to share the money around lo­cally. We are in­volved in the Gaelic school and chil­dren are the fu­ture. I think the money will be used for uni­forms and things for the Mod.’

This was the sec­ond Hog­manay ceilidh that she has been in­volved with. Last year the funds were split be­tween the com­mu­nity cen­tre and a care home for the el­derly on Skye.

There is a Har­ris ceilidh planned for Fe­bru­ary 25 and one for Skye on March 25, both of which will take place in the West End Ho­tel, Fort Wil­liam.

Joyce Mathers presents £500 to Gaelic school rep­re­sen­ti­tives El­iza Mof­fat and Ar­ran Stephen.
