Lovat Shinty Club Charity Appeal
Bella has chosen as its lead cause this year our local shinty club’s bid to build a new pavilion to replace its 40-year-old club house. Camanachd Cup winning Lovat Shinty Club is one of the pillars of our local community, with a strong social element augmenting the sporting side which in turn offers an extensive youth initiative for over 60 boys and girls and supports a successful ladies’ team.
The new pavilion will provide a community hub with rooms for hire and a treatment room for NHS clinics, plus male and female changing rooms, a social space, and a kitchen.
Please help us to help Lovat to realise the dream. It means so much to so many people in the local community from which your festival springs.

There will be other opportunities to support Lovat both before and during the festival. On 31st July, club members will commence a sponsored cycle ride from Glasgow around all the premier shinty clubs ending at Bella on 3rd August where they will be piped home (more details to follow; funds will be split 50/50 with the Highland Hospice). The club will have a stall at the event and will be running a ‘Beat the Goalie’ competition and small five-a-side competitions there.
