FUNDRAISING AND ACTIVITIES

***REMOVE THE RUBBISH***

Thanks to all of the crazy people who turned up to our 'REMOVE THE RUBBISH' event. In spite of the early rain we had a great turn-out and cleared most of a skip's worth of rubbish. And the sun did come out after all. Thank you also to Citywise, great support from the visiting crew, to MacAulay Askernish for protective gear, The Uist Mod Committee, who donated refreshments, the Uist Volunteer Centre, who provided tabards, sacks and gloves, and the Council's very obliging Waste management team at Market Stance.

2017 clean-up team

We found lots of things. Most of the rubbish was cigarette packets and drinks cans. We also found a frog, a credit card, 10p, 4 ants nests, 2 'L' plates (did someone chuck them out of the car in celebration?) a blue football and a whole load of other stuff.

CURRY AND QUIZ NIGHT

Charlene Hannaway and friends served up an amazing curry night (take-away and sit-in) and quiz the other night in Iochdar Hall. Many thanks to Charlene, Fudge, the quiz-master, and all the helpers. Thanks too to Iain MacRury for the curries, delicious, great to have a choice of curry styles. The evening raised 600 for our charity, as well as 600 towards Stephanie MacPhee's trip to Tanzania.

CARL 'DOO-DOOS' MACPHEE MEMORIAL MATCH AND DANCE

The memorial match was held on Saturday 15th August, on the Dark Island Football Pitch, Liniclate. Ronnie posted a video of the event on facebook. The match and dance raised the amazing sum of 2,700 towards the football pitch. For a great report of the match, visit the Island News and Advertiser

RODDY MACKAY AND HIS FEAR OF HEIGHTS

Roddy MacKay from Custom Prints did his Zipwire challenge. He overcame his fear of heights and zoomed for 190 metres across Celtic Park, from the Jock Stein Stand to the Lisbon Lions Stand. He raised over 800. :)

CHARLENE HANNAWAY'S QUIZ AND DANCE @ TALLA AN IOCHDAIR-AMAZING TOTAL

Charlene Hannaway hosted a quiz night and dance at Talla and raised over 4,600 which is an astonishing total. We've now raised nearly 20,000 towards the pitch. The waxing of the Iochdar Saints sounds entertaining, and some of the sponsor money is still due in. Charlene, you're amazing.
