FÈIS Rois is one of six groups to have been shortlisted in the STV North region with a chance of winning up to £60,000 in the Jubilee People’s Millions.
The Big Lottery Fund and ITV have come together to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee by creating a new fund for charities.
Awards will be given to improve local places or the lives of local people and Fèis Rois has come up with an innovative project that will enable people of all ages to participate in music-making activities through Fonn nam Fèis.
Fonn nam Fèis will offer a year-round programme of activities, including weekly instrumental classes, singing groups, and workshops in song writing and composition. The project will be wide ranging and will include partnerships with local community groups, care homes, hospitals, libraries and nursery schools.
The public will be able to vote for the Fonn nam Fèis project from 9am to midnight on Tuesday, June 28.
