Information for the restoration project
At a reception in New York during Tartan Week in April this year, illustrated talks were given by the Chief David Hannay, on the Clan Hannay Society, and by the convenor Stephen Hanna, on Sorbie tower. All donations went to the restoration appeal for Sorbie Tower.

Do you shop online? Purchases made through a partnership with easyfundraising.org.uk will direct a donation to the Clan Hannay Society. Find out more here. Currently, this organisation supports only causes in the United Kingdom, and only UK residents are eligible to sign up.
How it works
easyfundraising.org.uk helps charities, schools, sports clubs, community groups, and other good causes to raise money when their supporters shop online. So far we’ve raised over £3 million for causes throughout the UK.
It works in a similar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop,you raise a donation for your cause instead. It’s as simple as that!
You can shop with over 2,000 well known stores and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 2.5%, The Body Shop 6%, some insurance retailers will even donate up to £30 simply for taking out a policy with them!

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

Stephen Hanna, our resident Sorbie Tower Guide, would like to thank all visitors to the tower — members and non-members alike — for being so generous with their donations. The amount given so far from tours stands at around GBP1,500.00 ($3,000) over a period of two years.
