A determined mother and aunt are to take on Aberdeen’s Kiltwalk this weekend in support of The Leanne Fund.

Lorraine Robertson and Mandy Hunter are walking The Big Stroll (just under 15 miles) in memory of a beloved son and nephew Kyle Robertson who tragically passed away in February.

Mam Lorraine said:

“Kyle was diagnosed with CF when he was ten days old at Aberdeen Hospital.

“He never let CF stand in his way of living his life to the fullest.

“We are doing this fantastic walk to raise awareness of CF and The Leanne Fund.”

Kyle received support from The Leanne Fund and his mum and auntie have been very active fundraisers for the charity.

They have arranged family prize bingo nights, a rainbow celebration day in April, they have sold car stickers on a car cruise that Kyle’s friends arranged in May, and Lanterns and Leanne Fund teddy’s have also been sold with all proceeds going to the Fund.

Chrisetta Mitchell, Development Manager for The Leanne Fund said:

“We are so grateful to Lorraine and Mandy for raising funds for The Fund and also raising awareness of Cystic Fibrosis.

“We wish them well this weekend as they take on the Kiltwalk.”
