Local Mòd singers will also provide some entertainment for the evening with a variety of Gaelic tunes. Auctioneer for the evening is Iain Thomson, formerly of Thurso Auction Mart who will taking on the bidding wars for over 50 lots ranging from dinner for two, fishing for 10, to hairdressing vouchers and even a bit of slave labour thrown in.

Carol-Anne Mackay, Event Support Officer to the Local Organising Committee of Mòd Ghallaibh 2010 said “We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the local shops, companies and individuals for donating such a wide range of lots for this auction. We’d like to thank everyone who has kindly donated and also thank the Rotary for their help in organising this event. “There are far too many donations to list in full so I would suggest you come along to see for yourself the range of goods that you can bid for and grab yourself a bargain. All monies will support the fundraising efforts for the Royal National Mòd and will also benefit local charities supported by the Rotary so make sure you bring your wallets.”
