Tower Restoration Fund

Posted by franklaw on May 9, 2012

Want to help with the restoration of Sorbie Tower? Can’t make it to the 50th anniversary gathering, but want to contribute to the Society in some way?  In response to queries from members about donations for work on our ancestral keep, here’s the info you need.

Clan Chief Dr. David Hannay writes:

Our Clan seat, Sorbie Tower, is in urgent need of restorative work, and I am approaching all members for help towards this work, by donating £50 (but any amount will be welcome) in this 50th year.  If every member gives £50, we could create a fund in the region of £25,000, which would be a good start towards our goal of achieving a full restoration.  The names of those donating £50 [or the equivalent in other currency] or more will be entered in a special donations book, and each will receive a certificate.

I hope to see you in Scotland in May.
David R. Hannay, Chief of Clan Hannay

To make a donation, please send a cheque made out to The Clan Hannay Society, and write in the memo field – or enclose a brief note – indicating that it is intended for the Sorbie Tower Conservation Project.
