Woolfest fundraising event

National charity the SSAFA (Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association) helps anyone who has served in the armed forces and their families.

A network of 7,500 volunteers provide practical support to over 50,000 people from D-Day veterans to soldiers wounded in Afghanistan.

Local fund raiser Ann Morrison (Callanish) would like help with an event planned for Saturday, August 31st in St. Peter’s Church, Stornoway.

Volunteers are needed to donate items that can be sold to raise money to provide medical care for wounded service people.

All help and helpers are welcome on the day, which has an emphasis on knitted goods and baking, so anyone can contribute even if they are unable to attend.

If you would like more information about helping with this initiative please call: Ann, (SSAFA Fund Raiser) on 07561 514 751 or Joan, (Volunteer Centre North Lewis) on 07778 549 837
