More than 70 walkers will pound the pavements from Dusk till Dawn on the Isle of Lewis this Friday night to complete an epic 50k challenge in aid of The Leanne Fund.

The first Dusk2Dawn event took place in 2014 and raised more than £13,000 for the charity which supports those affected by Cystic Fibrosis and their families.

The team will set off from Perceval Square at 8pm and the route will take them through Lews Castle Grounds; around Newvalley, Laxdale and Benside; back on to the streets of Stornoway before heading out to Point taking them through Upper and Lower Bayble; before ploughing on around Knock and hitting the home straight back to the town centre via Plasterfield.

Walkers are expected to arrive back in Perceval Square between 6 and 8am on Saturday morning so if you’re en route for the early ferry, give them a wave!

If you see the team at any stage of the challenge, please give them some encouragement and support their efforts on this worthwhile challenge.

The Leanne Fund supports Cystic Fibrosis sufferers and their families across the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

The charity was set up in 2009 in memory of Leanne Mitchell from Lewis and it funds special treats and a range of support services for young people affected by Cystic Fibrosis and their families.
