Donnie takes charge!

Our most active member and campaigner Donnie Mackay died in the morning of Thursday, 6th June.
A memorial ceremony was held for Donnie at the National Hotel, Dingwall, at 1pm on Monday 17th.

Donnie was a personal friend to all of us and had been a member of the branch since it began in the 60s.  He was a tireless campaigner for independence and also worked for many other causes and yet always put himself in the background.  It seemed hardly any branch event could take place without Donnie.  From a sponsored bicycle ride, leafleting for the Yes campaign, to just the monthly branch meetings, Donnie was the one who made things possible.  He booked and manned the stands at events and games and was the driving force for most of our fund raising, such as 'Sale at the Cross.'

We all have fond memories of Donnie and we all shall miss him.  In his memory, we must work much harder for his dream of an independent Scotland, not only to honour his memory, but also to make up for the enormous amount of work that he did for the branch.



"I found the information I was looking for on the SNP-Dingwall website, which is excellent by the way.  I strongly commend the SNP-Dingwall website."  Nicola Sturgeon.
