The Leanne Fund is delighted to receive funding from The Scottish Salmon Company which will go towards their Pamper Hamper service which supports those affected by Cystic Fibrosis during hospital stays.
The Pamper Hamper service aims to provide a box of treats and practical items to support children and young adults who face regular and lengthy hospital stays.
In the past 12 months, the Fund has provided 80 Pamper Hampers to hospital patients across the North of Scotland.
Chrisetta Mitchell, Development Manager for The Leanne Fund said: “Many of those affected by Cystic Fibrosis are often spending two weeks at a time or longer in hospital for treatment.
"The Pamper Hamper service provides a selection of goodies and toiletries etc to support them during that time. The service is provided across the Highlands and Islands and Grampian and has been very well received by patients and hospital staff.”

The Leanne Fund was set up in 2009 in memory of Leanne Mitchell from the Isle of Lewis.
The charity funds special treats and a range of support services for young people affected by Cystic Fibrosis and their families across the region.
Since The Leanne 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.
The Leanne Fund relies entirely on fundraising, sponsors and charitable donations to fund their valuable work.
The Leanne Fund’s aim is to create happy memories now that can last a lifetime.
