News: An Lanntair Walks to Work for the Environment

26th June 2019

An Lanntair's staff team and friends will be Walking to Work....... a whole 16.5 miles from the Callanish Stones to Stornoway!

The team is getting together to do a Sponsored Walk on Saturday 7th September 2019 – from the incredible Callanish Stones on the West Side of the Isle of Lewis, all the way across the island to Stornoway and An Lanntair! 16.5 miles in total.

An Lanntair’s team is embarking on this marathon challenge to raise money to purchase and install a new Covered Cycle Shelter on the forecourt of An Lanntair in the centre of the town of Stornoway for the public and staff to use.

The organisation has just launched its new organisational Travel Plan to help reduce negative impacts on the environment and climate change. This ambitious Sponsored Walk will help to celebrate this and buy a much-needed Covered Cycle Shelter to support local people and An Lanntair staff to travel into town by bike.

As well as all this, An Lanntair has pledged to reduce its plastic usage and has already stopped stocking plastic straws, cups and water bottles in its cafe bar. Any local business who is interested to join forces and would like to see a copy of An Lanntair’s Travel Plan is welcome to contact its Chief Executive, Elly Fletcher, who would be happy to share all their plans.
