We were awarded the Community Action Award at the prestigious Scottish Charity Awards 2012 – what an achievement!
The Great Wilderness Challenge was a huge success once again, thanks to our team and all our sponsors we raised £23,800! We are absolutely delighted that our application to the Big Lottery Fund was successful for our Transforming Lives project and in addition, we welcomed Maureen McGinn, the Chair of the Big Lottery Fund Scotland Committee, Committee member David Green and Communications Officer Frances Chisholm to Victoria Cottage for a visit. Other exciting news is that we have been chosen as one of two charities to benefit from the mammoth ‘Row St Kilda to Skye’, event taking place in 2014!
This year we completed music workshops with Hector McInness, and a DVD slideshow of donated photos of Skye is accompanied by our own music , we are promoting it to our local hotels and businesses.
