The Linda Norgrove Foundation 10K Run or Walk takes place on Saturday 29th September- less than a week away.

Lorna and John Norgrove say: "You can RUN OR WALK, bring your family, friends, kids in buggies, dogs on leads, pick up a medal if you are one of the first 10 men and first 10 women to cross the finish line, enjoy soup and home baking at the end and generally have a good day out on the Bhaltos Peninsula in Uig.

"This is all happening on SATURDAY 29TH SEPTEMBER, 12 noon start from Reef Beach and we will be going clockwise round the peninsula.

"You can register on-line or on the day. Entry is £10. Children free. Event t-shirts £12. Food complimentary. Some walkers stop half-way for their soup, where there will also be water and a toilet.

"All proceeds from the event will go towards paying for major surgeries for children from poor families from across Afghanistan.

"Keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates and we hope you will join us for this our eighth 10K fundraising event.

And, if you are not on the island and would like to give your support, you can still register and run, walk, climb a mountain, swim, whatever you fancy on the day. Let us know where you are and send a photo if possible!
