During this time of crisis in our country, the effect of Covid-19 on our charities is having a devastating effect, says Megan Macdonald of Sandwick Bay Candles.

With the Bethesda shop on Bayhead, Stornoway, currently closed and the numerous fundraisers required to meet the costs of running the hospice also being cancelled, it is important to keep fundraising. 

“I am asking for your help to raise funds for our local Bethesda Care Home and Hospice."

It started off with a hamper raffle for Bethesda. “I have a hamper valued at £100 which I am going to raffle.  So let's raise as much as we can!” said Megan.

Support in amounts large and small is coming in through the event's JustGiving Page

“Bethesda is a vital service on our island home and one that we as a family have had first-hand experience.  Having worked with Bethesda over the last few years I want to do as much as I can during this time of uncertainty,” she says

Then there started to be a growing list of businesses also getting involved and donating a prize!

The draw will take place on Wednesday April 29, 2020 at 8pm.
