We’re putting final arrangements in place for the celebration of Ali’s life. It will take place at noon on 4th January at Clachan Church, Applecross. All are welcome, including children, if parents wish to bring them. Friends and family will be speaking and there will be lots of music. The wearing of woolly jumpers and/or kilts is encouraged but is not compulsory.
We are removing most of the chairs from the church, as we anticipate that there may be too many attending for everyone to get a seat. There are seats upstairs in the balcony, and there will be some chairs available downstairs for anyone not able to climb stairs, or if the balcony is full.
Parking at the church is limited, so we encourage those attending to walk, cycle or share cars if possible. There will also be a minibus service from the car park at the Applecross Inn.
Soup and sandwiches will be served at the Applecross Inn afterwards. Many thanks to Judith and her staff for their support.
We have set up a Crowdfunding page for Ali https://www.crowdfunder. co.uk/manageprojects/core/in-celebration-of-alasdair-macleod/ so anyone who wishes to can make a donation in his memory.
There are still Applecrosslife calendars for 2018 (featuring Ali’s photos) available at the Applecross Inn; all profit from these goes to Applecross Community Company.
There will be a collection dish at the celebration for anyone attending in person who would like to contribute that way.
