An appeal to ease the burden of Christmas during the cost of living crisis is on its way to hitting its £800 target just two days after being launched.

The GoFundMe appeal is seeking donations to help care receivers, from senior citizens to children with additional support needs, receive a gift from Barra’s ‘local Santas’.

The appeal is a partnership involving Castlebay Community School, Garadh Bagh a Tuath, Castlebay Care Home, and the Youth Cafe.

At the time of writing, the appeal has raised £110.
