Ladies Day raises the roof for The Leanne Fund

An incredible £1,800 was raised at the first ever Ladies Day in Nairn in support of The Leanne Fund. 

The Leanne Fund is the foremost charity working across the Highlands and Islands and Grampian to support those affected by Cystic Fibrosis and their families. 

The event was organised by Ashley Patterson from Nairn who has Cystic Fibrosis and has received support from The Leanne Fund. 

Held at the Sun Dancer in Nairn, the event included a prosecco reception and afternoon tea.

Ashley said: “I decided to host a Ladies Day to fundraise for The Leanne Fund. Over the past 5 years, the support the fund has given me has been incredible. From supporting me through driving lessons, special treats at Christmas time and allowing me to keep active with a gym membership - it was time I gave something back. 

“The Ladies Day included bottomless prosecco for a couple of hours, followed by afternoon tea. We raised a lot through our raffle and pick a square board! Our total for the day was a fantastic £1800! A great day had by all!”  

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.
