An Easter Bunny meet and greet fundraiser for Western Isles Cancer Care Initiative has raised £800.

The trio behind the themed door-to-door fundraising were Ronalda Hira, her mother, Morag Walker and Patricia Walker.

After their Easter bunny-themed effort, Ronalda commented on their fundraising total: “This was an amazing amount. We want to thank all those that took part and those who donated. It was a fun day for all. WICCI are thrilled with the amount raised. Hope to see you all again next year.”

WICCI - Uist and Barra thanked the trio for their “fabulous fundraiser,” which delighted the local children they met the Easter Bunny and the Mad Hatter.

They added: “Thank you to the Uist community for your support and generosity once again. This money will directly support cancer patients and their families in Uist and Barra.”
