Sean Harrison, from the Stramash Festival team, presents the cheque to Nicola Libby and Cat Campbell of The Leanne Fund

The Leanne Fund was delighted to receive a cheque for £1,000 this week from the Stramash Festival, held in Stornoway in August.
The Fund is extremely grateful to festival organisers who chose to fundraise for the charity at the annual local music event.
The donation will be used to directly support even more families as The Leanne Fund takes forward its Development Project to offer even more services and to a wider geographical area.

Set up in 2009 in memory of Leanne Mitchell, from Point, the charity funds special treats and a range of support services for young people affected by Cystic Fibrosis and their families across the Highlands and Islands.
Since The Fund was founded, it has continued to expand and develop the range of services and experiences offered in response to the needs of Cystic Fibrosis patients and their families.
Relying entirely on fundraising, sponsors and charitable donations to fund their valuable work, The Leanne Fund’s aim is simply – to create happy memories now that can last a lifetime.
