The seventh annual Linda Norgrove Foundation 10K run drew an excellent turnout to the picturesque Uig coast last weekend.

Taking place on the Bhaltos Peninsula, the 10K was open to all to either run or walk and fundraisers of all ages and abilities pulled on their trainers to raise money for The Linda Norgrove Foundation.

Rodney Read was back on his unicycle for the 10K while others took part from all over the country,

The 10K is the main fundraiser for The Linda Norgrove Foundation on Lewis and this year they have been raising funds to provide medical scholarships for disadvantaged young Afghan women to train to become doctors.

The cost for a year at a medical university in Kabul is approximately £1,200.

The plan is to pay the fees for the required five years of study for 12 young women whose families simply could not afford this amount.
