Co-op Backs Mod 2011

Published: 21 Sep 2010

The Co-operative is backing the 2011 Royal National Mod, which takes place in the Western Isles, with £5,000 donation to the local organising committee. Planning is already underway for the October 2011 Mod, the premier festival of Gaelic culture and language, and The Co-operative, which has stores across the Western Isles, is supporting the event.

Lorraine Christie, The Co-operative’s Regional Operations Manager, said: “Staging the Royal National Mod in the Western Isles will be a real highlight for people across the islands, as well as attracting many visitors. “We are sure it will be a success and a tremendous boost for the local community, and as a community retailer we are delighted to be able to play our part to help with the costs of planning.”

Alex MacDonald, Convenor of the Mòd nan Eilean Siar local Committee said: “The organising committee greatly appreciates the generous support of The Co-operative Group. Next year’s Mod will be a very significant event for the islands, and we’re delighted to have such support from a retailer that plays such an important role in the local community.”
