THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING WITH US ON OUR VIRTUAL FESTIVAL JOURNEY
Thank you to the Inverness Common Good Fund and Cairn Housing Association for their support. Also the many private individuals who have helped. We are very grateful to you all.
Have you thought about giving us a small donation?. Spare a thought for the festival- we have no tickets to sell, no raffle, no programme sales etc. We are 100% run by volunteers. If we want to survive to our centenary we need your support. Don’t be shy to give us small amounts – if you would have spent £2 on a coffee at one of our events, or £3.00 on parking, please consider using our easy Donate button (Top left) to add to our fund. Every little really does help.
