As you know, An Clochar is a not-for-profit registered charity. There are no salaries or expenses paid to any person involved. It is 100% voluntary based.


Now is a good time to announce a new draw!  We had hoped to launch our PEINTOLA Art Project as a community art project last spring, but due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will not be able to until next year. In the meantime, an exhibition is being planned for 2022 as our way of cultivating Care of the Earth through Art. The draw money will be put towards the cost of our 2021 website fees and paint for the art project. The draw will take place in July. Details on how to enter will be published on this page shortly.


Thank you again to all who participated. While lockdown has been very restrictive for us all, it is good to use the time we have in a positive and creative way. We have set up an Instagram page for our PEINTOLA project. Join us >> on Instagram.
