Torman has now achieved charity status in Scotland, number SCO49334.

The group says: "We offer funding support to people between Garynahine and Dalmore who wish to take part in music, singing, dancing and other cultural activities.

"As a result of our fundraising concert in March, we were able to pay towards costs of children from the area attenting Fèis Eilean an Fhraoich from the 22nd to the 26th of July and we were delighted to be in a position to assist so soon after we formed the group.

"As part of the Torman initiative, we aim to support local tuition providers. Here is Ashley MacDonald, who teaches piping to children in the catchment area, receiving a copy of ‘Scots Guards – Standard Settings of Pipe Music, Volume III’ from Torman chairperson Shona Macmillan."

Our next fundraiser will be a bingo night on Friday 20th September in the Carloway Hall – don’t miss it!
