Lewis & Harris Horticultural Producers
Tighean Innse Gall believes in supporting local community groups and projects, recently TIG were approached by the Lewis & Harris Horticultural Producers (LHHP) for support to provide solar powered electricity in their off-grid shed to power lights, 240 volt sockets and to provide hot water.
Their project aims to ascertain the needs of the shed and its potential to create its own energy, reducing the need for conventional power and reducing carbon.
They hope to become another community group achieving alternative energy production. TIG’s Management Committee were happy to approve sponsorship of £1000 towards LHHP’s costs and they propose to install a plaque on their building to acknowledge TIG’s support.
TIG wishes the LHHP all the best with their project and we look forward to getting updates on progress as it goes along.
Outer Hebrides Ladies Shinty Team
In November 2014, TIG approved a Sponsorship Policy to allow community groups or individuals to apply for funding to support a local event or provision. The underlying purpose of this policy is to raise the profile of the Association and these groups will be expected to allow TIG to publicise our involvement and display our logo at their events.
In 2015 we were proud to sponsor the Outer Hebrides Ladies Shinty Team and the ladies played their debut competitive match in their new strips sponsored by TIG with the new re-branded TIG logo.
In July 2016 we were also pleased to sponsor the Lewis & Harris Youth Football Association with sponsorship to attend a football development festival in Edinburgh, representing the Western Isles, also displaying our logo on items of their kit.
TIG has also recently agreed to sponsor a local young people’s film making project for the Hebrides International Film Festival 2017. They will be screening over the whole of the Western Isles and we will gain the opportunity to advertise our own promotional video to potentially over 1500 people over the three-day event.
