Third Sector Hebrides Showcase Enterprising Projects
Third Sector Hebrides (TSH) has been recognised by their peers from across Scotland,
who visited Stornoway this week. During the trip, representatives from Orkney, Falkirk
and East Lothian called in to Hebridean Chocolates and heard about other TSH activities.
Gaynor Jones, Chief Executive of Voluntary Action Orkney, said �There is much to learn
from the enterprising approach of Third Sector Hebrides. I�m always inspired by the extent of the
range of achievements when I visit Alasdair and his team. They demonstrate unfailing commitment
to the community and a real pride in what they do. It�s a model we should all aspire to.
(The chocolate tastes pretty fantastic too!)�
This was added to by Kenny Murphy, Chief Executive of CVS and Volunteer Centre Falkirk,
who said �It has been great to see the diverse range of activities being undertaken by TSH.
Organisations, like my own in Falkirk, have much to learn from the enterprising approach being
taken by TSH.�
Commenting on Hebridean Chocolates in particular, Eliot Stark, Chief Executive of Volunteer
Development East Lothian, said �This is a fabulous local social enterprise development, marrying
a unique quality product with a distinct community benefit; an example to enterprising third sector
agencies around Scotland.�
Alasdair Nicholson, Chief Executive of Third Sector Hebrides, said �I was pleased to see some
colleagues from very good organisations across Scotland, and to share with them some of the things
we have been engaged in. It is certainly a privilege for our whole team to receive recognition from
professional colleagues who are themselves amongst the best in the country.�
