The Captain's Cabin, Ullapool Bookshop and Lochbroom Hardware are delighted to announce that as a result of the Carrier Bag charge scheme (which came into effect in Scotland on 20th October 2014), we have donated our proceeds from plastic bag sales to our chosen Charity: Highland Hospice. A total sum of £213.30 has been sent to Highland Hospice and we will continue to support them via our Carrier Bag charge of 5p per plastic bag, as required by law.

This applies to all plastic bags purchased with your goods in either Lochbroom Hardware, Captain's Cabin and Ullapool Bookshop.

Thank you.
