The Samaritans of the Western Isles have received help from some Samaritans of their own – in the form of community wind farm charity Point and Sandwick Trust.

The Trust have donated £3,000 to the local charity to help with the costs of upgrading their base in Stornoway in order to help them help people in their hour of need.

Those old spectacles, those neglected and forgotten glasses…there's a chance to put them to good use.

Search 'em out, and on 22nd October, between 7-9pm, get round to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Newton Street, Stornoway, and drop them off to bring hope to others throughout the world. 

The glasses collections are organised by the Lions Clubs International, which is an international non-political service organization. 

Scottish Rugby today (Thursday August 15th) announced Walker Slater, in conjunction with Harris Tweed Hebrides, will be the Official Formalwear Partner for the next two seasons.

The historic fabric has been applied to a bespoke tweed in keeping with the rich rugby heritage and colours associated with the national team and governing body.
