GalGael at Holyrood
A contingent of our volunteers and staff convoyed out to Edinburgh on the evening of the 16th of April to a wee GalGael event in the Scottish Parliament. It was all part of a week long exhibition to inform politicians about our work over the past 15 years and demonstrate how we make a real difference to not only many people in our community through work and engaging with our heritage but how our work is increasingly being regarded as innovative in areas such as health and well being, good citizenship, environmental improvement and rekindling community. The exhibition was well received and the event gave our folk a chance to see the Parliament building and meet some MSP's.
Thanks to Patrick Harvie for sponsoring us, Rob Gibson for the tour and to our guest speakers, Joe Jones, Willie McKenzie, Jenny McCarry, Maxwell Macleod, Katherine Trebeck and our own Alastair McIntosh. Thanks also to the events and exhibition staff at Holyrood.
