Win a Holiday!

Published: 29 Mar 2011

Fancy the Chance of Winning a Holiday Courtesy of Mod nan Eilean Siar 2011?

The Mod nan Eilean Siar local committee are about to embark on their latest fundraising drive. The committee are offering the opportunity to win a £1500 voucher for a holiday, through the Co-operative Travel. Along with this fantastic prize will be £500 of spending money and Loganair have generously agreed to pay for the return flights from Stornoway to wherever the foreign holiday departs for.

Tickets will shortly go on sale and will be available via the Mod 2011 Local Committee’s website (www.modnaneileansiar.com), various retail outlets and from committee members. Tickets will also be on sale at various events across the Western Isles over the coming months and of course throughout Mod week itself.

The draw will take place during Mod week (14th to 22nd October 2011), giving people ample opportunity to purchase tickets! The voucher will allow the lucky winner to choose where they want to go, how many people they want to take and when they want to go.
