We have been thinking about how we can contribute further to the Nancy Glen fund raising, and have decided that something which celebrates those important Mums in our lives would be appropriate.
Painting a plate, bowl or mug for this Mother’s Day (March 11th) is something truly unique that anyone can do to say ‘Thanks’ and ‘I Love You Mum’.
Mackay’s will donate all the proceeds from the first 10 ‘Paint-a-Pot’ sessions before Mother’s Day in order to help with the Nancy Glen fund raising.
Islay House is holding a Charity Ceilidh in aid of The Nancy Glen Families.
Staff will be working for free and money raised will be going to the Nancy Glen families
A Charity Ceilidh with all proceeds being donated to the Clyde Fisherman’s Trust in aid of the Nancy Glen Families.

We are all thrilled that the life of John Miller was spared in the tragic sinking of the Nancy Glen but we are all saddened that Duncan MacDougall and Przemek Krawczyk remain missing believed to be in the vessel on the seabed.
This has stunned so many.
It has also mobilised us in solidarity and sympathy to do what we can to extend support and comfort to the families concerned and to one another. It is instinctive to wish to do something.
So much has already been done which demonstrates the remarkable human spirit, locally and beyond. But we wait and wait and it would seem as if we have to wait some time yet in the endeavour to bring Duncan and Przemek home.
Thus the idea was raised and has now become a reality to have a large candle lit on the quay.
On Saturday 3rd February at 7 pm there will be a gathering on the quay beside the Fish Sales building where we will light a single candle which will remain lit until Duncan and Przemek are home.
Join Kenny MacNab, Catriona Hood, Mathew Ramsay, myself and others on the quay. We use symbols daily as a visual language and this is one which speaks loudly of our communal loss. Please share this information with those who are not online and do not do Facebook.
