    Don't have time to donate right now?


    2021 has already been a strange year for many An Lanntair staff, some of us haven’t even set foot in the building this year let alone put on a gig! We are all really looking forward to the day we can reopen and welcome people back to the arts centre. This year for our Staff Fundraiser, we would like to raise money for an amazing local charity that has worked so hard since the pandemic hit, Western Isles Association for Mental Health. Throughout the lockdowns and uncertainty of the past year, WIAMH has continued to provide mental health support and services to so many local residents across the islands. This work is so important - we agreed as a team that we would like to support this organisation to continue these activities at this challenging time for our communities.

    WIAMH is a small but very important locally-based charity located on the Isle of Lewis. The organisation embraces the recovery model and works in partnership with a range of statutory and third sector agencies to support people experiencing mental ill health and substance misuse issues.

    Our fundraising challenges

    Our staff will be doing a range of challenges, some creative, some physical, for our fundraiser this year. An Lanntair's beautiful building on Stornoway waterfront will be 16 years old this year, so all of our challenges are focused on the number 16 - check them out below!

        Professor Roberto Trotta gave us (Loughton Astronomical Society) a brilliant talk on Zoom. Instead of paying his fee, he recommended we donate the money to An Lanntair for the great work they do.
