The Camanachd Association is a not-for-profit organisation and as such requires substantial funding to finance the work that we do to encourage, promote and develop the sport across Scotland. In the last few months alone the Camanachd Association has worked in partnership to coordinate and deliver a range of activities including the Shinty Development Camp for boys and girls, the National Disability Festival that engaged 12 teams of young people from across Scotland.
The work that we do aims to support our member clubs and associations who reach and engage people in some of the most rural communities in Scotland providing active opportunities to take part in our historic sport. By encouraging active living in a team sport, shinty also helps bring communities together and provides a positive and healthy life choice reaching people from all communities and backgrounds.
At the Camanachd Association we seek to deliver a vibrant, welcoming and character-building environment which encourages people to stay active for life. By engaging the whole community, we are able to deliver positive opportunities to all. Shinty is an inclusive sport and the Camanachd Association works constantly to increase the levels of diversity of its members.
Anderson Shaw and Gilbert are one company who have enabled the Camanachd to develop its reach into some of the most remote communities in Scotland. By joining the Camanachd Association’s illustrious business club, they have helped ensure Scotland’s most historic sport thrives.
Anderson Shaw and Gilbert provide expert, easy to understand legal advice to people all over Scotland, as well as an estate agency service to help you manage moving home. In addition to this, through their commitment to the Camanachd Association’s business club they are able to service communities in Scotland by increasing accessibility to shinty. As well as sponsoring the Camanachd Association as a whole, Anderson Shaw and Gilbert also sponsor Kinlochshiel Shinty Club.
The Camanachd Association has a number of important benefits that it passes on to its Business Club members. These include marketing and profile at the Camanachd Cup Final and the MacTavish Cup Final – both live televised matches. In addition to this, there are Hospitality match tickets for the aforementioned games, as well as the International Shinty/Hurling, when played in Scotland. On top of all of this, there is regular communication and promotion through the website concerning the impact that Business Club sponsors have on one of Scotland’s oldest and most iconic team sports by engaging rural shinty communities.
The Camanachd Association would like to take this time to put on record how much we appreciate the support of all of our business club members. Not only do they allow the Camanachd to function as a governing body, they also aid in the delivery of essential community engagement projects all across Scotland.
