Glengarry Highland Games has welcomed support from leading independent renewable energy producer, Fred. Olsen Renewables. The local event has received funding from Fred. Olsen Renewables to help provide parking facilities for visitors to the games.
The Glengarry Highland Games returned after two long years and the 2022 Games was celebrating 50 years of the modern Glengarry Games. The event took place in Invergarry which is one of the villages close to the proposed Culachy Wind Farm.
The funding provided by Fred. Olsen Renewables helped to improve parking facilities at the games, enabling mats to be provided in the parking field – designed to stop cars from getting stuck in soft ground.
Rachel Baird, Project Manager at Fred. Olsen Renewables, commented:
“Fred. Olsen Renewables is committed to supporting the communities near our wind farms. We were pleased to be able to help the Glengarry Games return after two years and to help provide a fantastic experience for all of the visitors to the event.
“We are working closely with the local community to hear their views on our plans to develop Culachy Wind Farm. We hope to be able to bring forward a project that will play an integral role in the local community and help to provide long-term support to community projects, such as the Glengarry Highland Games, for years to come.”
