ONWARDS and UPWARDS
We got this year's charity campaign rolling with a Cawl and Cake Lunch on St. David’s Day. Over fifty of our suppliers, local Bed & Breakfast and holiday property owners as well as many of our creative collaborators joined us for a tasty Welsh broth and delicious cakes. Thanks to everyone for generously donating to the Mountain Rescue Team at this event…we are off to a terrific start.
All of our resident guests in The House Over-By have the opportunity to donate £1.00 to the Charity on departure and Team Three Chimneys plan to head upwards for real, into the Skye mountains, to raise more funds throughout the year.
But before we power onwards…we would like to take a brief look back. We want to celebrate all that was achieved by our guests and #TeamThreeChimneys during the last year. We raised £1500 for Lucky2Bhere and succeeded in installing the new emergency defibrillator for all of our guests, staff and local community on the exterior wall of The House Over-By. We raised £1172 for Barnardo's in their thirtieth anniversary year.
Working with our event partners, The Skeabost Hotel and Ullinish Lodge our biggest success was raising £3891.80 to kick-start The Skye and Lochalsh Micro Abattoir crowd funding appeal. This took place at the inaugural Skye Chefs St. Andrew’s Day Dinner 2016. It was a great night of celebration and collaboration, both in the beautiful Skeabost dining room and behind the swing doors with all the Chefs at work.
All of this could only have been achieved by the huge generosity of our guests and supporters, our team and our event partners. To say thankyou we are sharing this beautiful montage by local photographer Harry Martin, which captures the spirit of what can be achieved when Skye comes together…
