Christine Macleod, who works as a day care organizer at the Alzheimer Scotland Solas Day Centre, decided to climb the Clisham with her close friends for support as part of her ongoing fundraising for Alzheimer Scotland Lewis and Harris.  And she succeeded in reaching the top of the 799 metre peak.

She also recently organized a soup and pudding event that raised £1200.

Marion MacInnes, Service Manager for Alzheimer Scotland Lewis and Harris, said that Christine was a great example of the dedicated staff and volunteer team that support the local service.

“We rely heavily on local fundraised income to make sure we can continue to support as many people living with Dementia and their families as possible, contributions such as this are an amazing help. We are all very proud of Christine’s achievement”

Christine has raised more than £800 in donations from different sources so far.

Christine Macleod said:  “It was very cold and windy as we reached the top but it was amazing. Thanks to everyone that sponsored me and to Janis Brand and Liz Carmichael for their support in the day.”
