The late Sir Iain Noble


An organisation established by Skye's Sir Iain Noble may be no more but its work to help young Gaels will go on.

It was back in 1987 that Sir Iain brought together figures from the business world with the aim of helping young people in their chosen careers.

However, after nearly three decades of such work officials behind the original Club Gnìomhachas nan Gàidheal decided in 2015 that the best way of continuing the work of the club was to transfer the remaining funds to another Gaelic organisation.

Now during a ceremony held in Edinburgh some £83,000 has been donated to Urras Brosnachadh na Gàidhlig (Gaelic Language Promotion Trust), an organisation dedicated to encourage and promote the teaching, learning and use of the Gaelic language.
 
Back in the the eighties Sir Iain's creation was seen very much as a pioneer in the development of the Gaelic language, Urras Brosnachadh na Gàidhlig will continue what he began especially through supporting the teaching and preservation of the Gaelic language.
