With the start of Mòd nan Eilean Siar 2016 just eight months away, the local organising committee are actively raising funds before the week-long event kicks-off on the 14th of October.

A number of events are being held over the coming weeks and months, starting with a hamper raffle. Tickets for the hamper are £1/strip and will be sold in the foyer area of the Western Isles Hospital between Tuesday 9th February and Friday 12th February.

The draw will be made at 5pm on the 12th and the winner will receive a wonderful hamper which has been kindly donated by local business, 'Delights'.
