A Skye woman is aiming to spread some cheer this December.

Tiffany Maberley, owner of The Thistle Snack Bar in Portree, came up with a plan last year to use the 5p bag charge for people who needed cheering up.

The 5p's soon mounted up and totalled around £160, which meant Tiffany was able to deliver twelve sacks.

On her Just Giving page, she wrote: "I was so humbled by how the community got behind me and donated - some donated the whole money for a sack some donated the few pounds they could afford - but all in all i managed to deliver twelve sacks and a few extra bits to some elderly single people too!

"I've possibly never felt so good as to play a real life Santa bringing surprise and a bit of relief and cheer to some of the households over Skye.  My two sons came with me and also really appreciated being able to experience this act of kindness from our community!

"So I would like to do it again this year and hope to be able to deliver fourteen sacks this year!

"I have already been pointed in the direction of a few families living well below the poverty line in Skye and as happened last year - the sacks will be delivered discreetly and only the nominators and the recipients will know who they are!"
