A sponsored cycle round the Isle of Cumbrae, involving over 60 women from Law last month, raised a staggering £22,000.

Those who run the charity it was supporting, the Williams Syndrome Foundation, were “flabbergasted”.

And bike ride organiser, Mairi McMinn, who is also volunteer Scottish co-ordinator for the charity, said this week: “I thought we would raise £3000 but we have seven times that. It is absolutely fantastic. It is actually going to be over £22,000.”

Now the charity, which is run by parents of children with Williams Syndrome, has the happy task of deciding how to spend the money.
