Two Harris teenagers are fundraising for their trip to Kenya and this Friday one will undertake a sponsored swim wearing a Harris Tweed bikini.

Sade Martin and Medeleine Reedy are going to the Ulamba Orphanage to carry out voluntary work and in the run up to their trip they are raising money for the facility.
