Nearly £5,000 has been donated to the Leanne Fund from an Peking to Paris endurance car rally.


Lewis residents, Claudine Bloom and Andy Twort, took part  event last summer crossing two continents in their faithful 1965 Volvo Amazon model 122 car, Amy Amazon.


They chose to support The Leanne Fund as one of their charities and raised an amazing £4,952.89.


Chrisetta Mitchell, development manager of the charity, said: “We were so grateful to Claudine and Andy for the funds raised and also for their efforts to raise awareness of the charity.


“Their challenge was an incredible feat of endurance and the funds they raised will go towards making a difference to the lives of young people affected by cystic fibrosis.”
