Students and staff at Lews Castle College this week embarked on a fund-raiser for the Linda Norgrove Foundation.

Linda’s parents set up the Foundation following her abduction and death in Afghanistan last year in her memory and in order to carry on the work she had started in Afghanistan, primarily with women and children.

“Linda is an excellent role model for the young people of these islands, and Lews Castle College is proud to support the continuation of her work.” said a representative of Lews Castle College Student Association.

They added: “We are doing the sponsored cycle to raise funds for the Foundation as we feel that it is a cause worthy of support for the work which will continue the work of Linda in supporting the work of volunteers throughout the world.“
