Do you have any old jars of coins or pennies rattling about in a drawer? Why not donate them to the Befriending Lewis mile of pennies fundraiser!

They only need 8000 more coins to reach the target of one mile and will be in Iceland in Stornoway on Saturday. If you cannot make it down to Iceland on Saturday why not drop of your bags of spare coins to them at their office at Third Sector Hebrides, 30 Francis Street.

Befriending aims to provide supportive, reliable relationships through volunteer befrienders, to people who would otherwise be socially isolated. To find out more visit
