Light Up Portree
With news that The Highland Council no longer have a dedicated budget to provide Christmas trees and lights in Portree Village a group of residents came together at the start of 2019, joining forces with the Portree and Braes Community Trust to ensure that Portree has Christmas lights this year and for many years to come. Plans are ambitious. £10,000 is required but it is hoped that this will light up Christmases for many years to come. Some of the lights may be used to brighten the village all year round.The group want to provide decorations and celebrations that will make Skye proud and are exited about creating memorable festive events that can be built on in future years.
A Just Giving Page has been launched here. Please donate if you can.
If you have other ideas for fundraising, the group would love to hear about them and would be happy to help organise fundraising events. Could your club, school or workplace hold a bake-sale or raffle? Would you take on a sponsored challenge? We welcome any offers of help and donations...no matter how small. Individuals and groups can set up their own Just Giving fundraising page and link it to the campaign. Please get in touch if you would like us to show you how.
Help us make Christmas in Portree very special for everyone in Skye and share this page as widely as possible. Thank you!
