Brighten up everyone’s day with a Rainbow Raiser at your school, college or workplace this February, all in aid of The Leanne Fund.

The Leanne Fund offers a range of services to individuals affected by Cystic Fibrosis and their families across the Highlands, Islands and Grampian regions.

This special fundraiser will help make a real difference to the lives of those with CF and ensure a fun charitable activity for your class, group or workplace.

All you have to do is request a Rainbow Raiser pack and get set to wear your best/wackiest and brightest clothes for the day.

Chrisetta Mitchell, Development Manager for The Leanne Fund said: “Each week five babies are born with Cystic Fibrosis and sadly two young lives are lost. There is currently no cure.

“At The Leanne Fund we provide a range of support services to individuals affected by Cystic Fibrosis and their families, helping them to maintain and improve their quality of life and live life to the full. This help is available across Highlands, Islands and Grampian.

“On the last Friday of February 2018 we will be inviting schools, colleges, work places and businesses to partner with us in hosting a ‘Rainbow Raiser’, from which the funds raised will contribute towards making a difference in the lives of those affected by this life-limiting disease.”
