The Iolaire Working Group is pleased to confirm that commemorative Iolaire poppy pins produced by Poppy Scotland, will be available to purchase for £3 each from Monday 1st October 2018.
The pins will be available from the Stornoway Library, Stornoway Town Hall, Comhairle Offices on Sandwick Road and Comhairle Offices in Tarbert.
Dolina Macleod, Member of the Iolaire Working Group, said: “We are pleased to have worked in partnership with Poppy Scotland to give people the opportunity to purchase these specially made Iolaire poppy pins. The Working Group felt that it was particularly poignant that these be made available to buy in advance of Armistice Day in November and, of course, the centenary of the Iolaire tragedy at the end of this year.”
All proceeds will go towards costs related to the Iolaire Commemorative events.
