A CYCLING duo completed a gruelling 220 mile route through the Scottish Islands in just three days for a children’s charity.
Jacqui Douglas, from Windermere, and Sarah Jones, of Kendal, pictured, raised £1,180 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Jacqui said: “We are delighted that we have been able to help – and even had fun doing it!"

“Starlight work tirelessly to grant wishes to seriously and terminally ill children and we are thrilled to have been able to support it.”
The 42-year-old director at McKenzie Douglas Legal Recruitment in Bowness and 43-year-old Sarah - an educational consultant - took on the challenge after a close friend’s daughter was offered a Starlight holiday.
They cycled a 65-mile route around Mull on day one, travelled through the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and Arisaig before catching a ferry to Skye to completing the last 80-mile leg to Portree.
