A £30,000 crowdfunding appeal has been launched to get a new playpark at Taigh Sgìre Sholais over the fundraising finish line.

The community organisation has already raised £30,000 but needs to double this amount to make the Sollas playpark in North Uist a reality.

Writing on their appeal page, the team behind the playpark say: “By helping us, you become part of a movement that values the importance of play, imagination, active learning and community, creating a lasting legacy for our children. Every pound donated brings us a step closer to creating a safe and stimulating haven for our young adventurers.

“In addition to this crowdfunder campaign, our team of volunteers are busy exploring other ways to generate funds to make our play park dream a reality. Together, we can achieve a playpark that will be cherished for years to come and open for all to enjoy.”

Four supporters have got the ball rolling with donations totalling £160.
