Sponsors Support Essential For Hebcelt’s Success
Caroline Maclennan, Director of the Hebridean Celtic festival has spoken about how The success of HebCelt relies heavily on Sponsors support and the goodwill of the Community. ‘As a grassroots event almost entirely managed and produced by voluntary effort, that ongoing community support is vital. Such a major undertaking would be impossible without people, businesses and organisations giving their time and effort in kind when needed, sometimes unexpectedly.
‘We also need funding and we appreciate all the help we get from bodies such as Creative Scotland, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and Highlands and Islands Enterprise, who have been long-time supporters and help us fulfil our mission to promote traditional music, the Gaelic language and the wider island culture.
‘To supplement our core public funding, we lean on private sector support to ensure our programme is as strong and diverse as possible to appeal to all sections of the community.
