Local social enterprise Ceangail CIC Director thanked their volunteers at last night’s get together for their continued support and used this opportunity during Volunteer Week Scotland to share its good news on 2 new exciting projects.
Although Ceangail CIC, the organisers of Stirling Highland Games, along with the Highland Games committee had to cancel the main event a couple of weeks ago, they now plan on delivering the only virtual highland games event during the 2020 season.
The organisation is also planning on delivering a virtual Creative Arts Festival in November on St Andrews Day to raise funds for the frontline 4 charities.
Matt McGrandles, Director at Ceangail CIC advised, “It was important to the Ceangail Board that I put our volunteers front and centre during Volunteer Week Scotland because without them we simply couldn’t deliver the projects we do. I couldn’t have asked for a better response from them at last night’s volunteer gathering and I know they will help make both these events as successful as any of our other Projects. I can’t thank this core group of 40 volunteers enough for their time and dedication to our good cause. I’m looking forward to seeing what the team can do over these next few months.”
Ceangail connects communities through its Project and Event delivery in Scotland. The virtual event in August will concentrate on showcasing the best of Stirling, including its Highland Games whilst the virtual arts festival in November will focus on bringing Scotland together to enjoy watching up to 30 Scottish artists perform throughout the day.
Following several weeks of trading uncertainty due to Covid-19, Ceangail managed to recently secure funding through the Pivotal Enterprise Fund giving them the opportunity to continue working on both Projects.
For many 3rd Sector organisations, Volunteers Week will be a chance to showcase the range of volunteering opportunities on offer. Ceangail is always looking for new volunteers to join its family so if you are interested then email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details and Board Member, Catriona Cripps, will follow up on your enquiry.
