Back in 2013, we were involved with a new local charity ‘Made in Tain’ which opened Thursday 13 June 2013. We were able to support the charity in the renovation of the shop building and helped to source donations from local businesses & trades.
The shop, originally located on Bank Street, Tain provides work and life skills for young people with support needs. Made in Tain stock a variety of gifts for all occasions, made by the young people including: scented candles, an aromatherapy range, cards and soaps which can be made up into gift hampers to order.
The charity was set up by an award winning social enterprise group of young people called The Digit Group, who attended Dornoch Academy, Invergordon Academy, Golspie High, Tain Royal Academy and St Duthus Special School.
You can find out more about the initial project on the Highland Council Website.
The project has now changed premises to 24 Tower Street, Tain, but their good work continues in just the same way. Pay them a visit if you are in the area or check out their website. You can also purchase some of their gifts on line.
