Each year a number of local and national charities and organisations are assisted by the Hebridean Celtic Festival Trust through fund raising opportunities.
Macmillan Cancer Support
Margaret-Ann Maciver receiving a cheque from Coinneach Morrison, Jane Morrison and Caroline Maclennan in 2019 on behalf of the Hebridean Celtic Festival Trust for monies donated to Macmillan Cancer Support by festival goers over 10 years association.
Macmillan Cancer Care volunteers contribute a great deal of support in ensuring that our less abled patrons are cared for in the viewing platform areas and in turn are the festival’s chosen charity. During HebCelt 2023 they received donations totalling £6k (£4.9k in 2022) which provides an excellent contribution to their ongoing charitable endeavours.
