Rotary Club of Lochaber Christmas Festival and Little Elves Competition

For another year running Ferguson Transport & Shipping are delighted to sponsor The Lochaber Christmas Festival – we will again be covering the costs of The Cairngorm Reindeer Team to attend the Christmas Festival organised by the Rotary Club of Lochaber.

Ferguson Transport & Shipping spent the afternoon last week with The Rotary Club of Lochaber reading and assessing poems in order to choose the winning elves who will ride along with the reindeer – choosing the winners was a hugely difficult task as there was a high volume of fantastic talented young people.

The two children – Faolan Hunter (age 9 Lundavra Primary School) and Kayla Duncan (age 8 Caol Primary School) have been chosen as part of the Lochaber Times’ search for two little helpers for Santa and his reindeer at the Christmas Festival on Saturday 25th November.

The annual Christmas Festival is a fun day out for all the family – this year it will kick off with the High Street Christmas gathering on Friday 24th November 6.00 – 8.00pm. Followed by the Rotary Christmas Festival at the Nevis Centre on Saturday 25th November with the reindeer parade from Cameron Square at 10.30- leading on to a day of festive fun at the Nevis Centre.

This week also coincides with the launch of ‘Children’s Bedtime Stories from the Scottish Highlands’ written by Rotarian member David Anderson and his Grandson Jack – the book will be available to purchase on the day with all proceeds to the Rotary Club of Lochaber Benevolent Fund.
