Getting our winner's jewellery ready for her! This is going to be Lenice's 'Cridhe' set. This design is named Cridhe, 'heart' in Gaelic, which we thought was the perfect design for someone doing great things in the heart of their community during lockdown. Lenice has Rowan Barn in Plockton. Check out their produce if you haven't already!
This was the 3rd of our lockdown giveaways. Our final one will be at the end of this month and it will be dedicated to NHS staff. After that, we have a wee plan to raise funds for Broadford & Strath Community Company. We're going to donate the proceeds from the first 'batch' of one of our brand new designs to the community company to help a little way towards the meals they're providing for the more vulnerable folk in our community. More on our new design coming soon!
We've had a few welcome enquiries about repairs & watch battery jobs over the last week or so. Even though we're still closed, please just get in touch if you need any workshop services. We're not opening our shop doors yet but we are very happy & willing to arrange drop offs & collections of repairs and orders.
Although we're not sticking to our previous hours while we're closed, we are in most days & are trying to be as flexible as possible with drop offs & collections. This is possible most days. We're not setting specific days or times as we will work around you as much as we can. Sometimes we may need to ask you to bear with us as we can't do a job while you wait at the moment and you may not be able to collect on your first day of choice but we're almost always able to accommodate you.
Quickest ways to contact us while the shop doors are closed:
🍍Mobile phone (please use if you can't contact us on our work number but want to discuss something).
Text or call
You can also contact us by email or through our website but we may take a day or so to reply this way:
We have a winner! We're really pleased to say that the winner of our latest lockdown giveaway is Lenice Townend from Rowan Barn in Plockton! Lenice was nominated by both Audrey Campbel & Elaine Hunter for supplying & delivering her fresh eggs to the local villages free of charge for 3 months. We get our eggs from Lenice every week & have been enjoying the best strawberries we've ever tasted over the last few weeks! Lenice, please send us a message to arrange your winning jewellery!
These pieces from our Cridhe collection are the designs which the winner from our current giveaway will choose from. Cridhe means 'heart' in Gaelic so this is the perfect design for someone in the heart of your community, volunteering to help others during the Coronavirus crisis. Please see our previous post to nominate someone special. Entries close at midnight.
Our previous 2 lockdown giveaways had hundreds of nominations. This one only has about 20 on the final day!
It's the end of another month in lockdown and at Love from Skye that means NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN for someone who is doing amazing things in their community to win a piece of our jewellery in the third of our 4 giveaways!
🖐🖐🖐Please, please, please read the below entry requirements BEFORE YOU NOMINATE (with the previous giveaways we've spent a lot of time replying to invalid entries to ask for the correct info).🖐🖐🖐
🖐The person you nominate must be helping / volunteering. IT MUST NOT BE PART OF PAID WORK. (We have already done a giveaway for a key worker. We would now like to give a piece of jewellery to someone who is helping out on a VOLUNTARY basis).
🖐Please enter someone by...
1. Naming them in the comments.
2. Tell us roughly what they are doing to help.
3. Roughly where in the country.
There is no need for any further information. (Although we do need these bits of info to validate your entry, please do feel free to be discreet as we realise that some folk prefer to be modest).
🖐If the person you are nominating is on Facebook, please tag them. You may nominate someone who does not use Facebook ONLY if you are able to contact them. If they are our winner, we would contact you and ask to be put in touch.
🖐Please only nominate someone who loves Skye or who enjoys wearing handmade jewellery (otherwise their prize won't be special or meaningful to them).
🖐Please ensure you comment on this original post, on our page, NOT on a shared post - we will not see comments on shared posts.
🤞The winner will be chosen at random as it would be far too difficult a job to choose a winner in this situation.
🤞Voting closes at midnight on Friday.
🤞The winner of this giveaway may choose from the following pieces shown in the image from our Cridhe collection, Cridhe meaning 'heart' in Gaelic which seems appropriate for someone who is doing great things in the heart of their community.
