2015

May

We are happy to have purchased a replacement vehicle for our Dial-A-Bus service. The purchase of this vehicle - a Ford Connect - was only possible due to a combination of grants from the Clothworkers Foundations (£9,000) and the Garfield Weston Foundation (£5,000), as well as the money raised by Sheona Griffiths who ran the London Marathon in support of Tagsa last year. Thank you to both Foundations and to Sheona for your support.

 

We also wish to thank the following charitable trusts for their financial support:

 

Christina Mary Hendrie Trust who donated £7,500 towards the staffing costs of Doigheag Respite Care Home for the coming financial year.

 

Albert Hunt Trust, Russell Trust, and James T Howat Charitable Trust who donated £1,000, £1,600, and £500 respectively towards the running costs of our Mental Health and Wellbeing Outreach Project.

April

Our new joint initiative with Cothrom, Local Food for Local People, officially commences this month. The project will be overseen by our newly recruited Project Leader and two Project Coordinators.

March

We are delighted to have received £5,000 from the Garfield Weston Foundation and £9,000 from the Clothworkers Foundation towards the purchase of a vehicle for our Dial-A-Bus service.

 

Our second Bingo in Talla an Iochdair was held on Friday 6th March. Unfortunately, the weather conditions on the night depleted the numbers, but we were still able to raise £500 towards new equipment for Doigheag Respite Care Home. Again, we extend our thanks to all the individuals and local businesses who donated prizes, and to everyone who braved the weather and came out to support us!

February

Tagsa Uibhist held a Bingo in Talla an Iochdair on Friday 6th February to raise funds for the Doigheag Respite Care Home. The event was a success, and raised over £1000.

We extend our thanks to everyone who generously donated prizes, and to all those who came along on the night.
