Lochs-based woodworker Richard Swift is raising money for Wallace & Gromit Children's Foundation – Elizabeth's Footprint again this year.

He has made a wooden 'quad' (last year, the attraction was a rocking giraffe) and has been selling tickets at the Co-op and Western Isles Hospital. 

He will be at Argos on Cromwell Street on Monday and Tuesday,  2 & 3 December. The draw is to place on 4th December.

Richard said: “I wanted to help as a good friend of mine recently lost her daughter, at the age of just five, to a serious childhood illness and I felt so upset about it that I tried to think of what I could do.”
