Iain Campbell has praised The Scottish Salmon Company after they came on board as title sponsor for the Western Isles Island Games Association (WIIGA).
The WIIGA team manager admits that without their sponsorship the Western Isles may not have been able to compete in this summer’s NatWest Island Games in Jersey.
Speaking this week Campbell spoke of his delight at welcoming The Scottish Salmon Company on board for the new three years.
He said: “Without the support of The Scottish Salmon Company many of our athletes would be unable to travel to Jersey this year.
“It is so important that athletes in the Western Isles are given the chance to compete in international competitions and we hope that with the help of The Scottish Salmon Company we’ll be able to attract even more talented young sportsmen and women to get involved in the Games.”
The Scottish Salmon Company employs over 230 people across the Outer Hebrides and has a proud history of supporting the local communities.
WIIGA supports talented athletes from across the Western Isles, hosting training camps and supporting skill development, as well as enabling a team to travel to the Island Games, hosted in alternate years by member islands across the world.
This year the Island Games will be held in Jersey from 27 June to 3 July, where a massive 4,500 competitors (80 from the Western Isles), officials and supporters will travel from across the world to attend.
