CHAS board member Ian Thomson was delighted to accept a cheque for £9,895 raised on Shetland from events surrounding the 'Jake Porter Duathlon' held in Tingwall on 28 April.

The Shetland Triathlon club named the event in memory of Jake who visited Rachel House and sadly died last year. Jake's parents June and Craig presented the cheque along with Gemma Passmore, Specialist Children's Physiotherapist at Gilbert Bain Hospital and a member of the Triathlon Club. 

This impressive sum was raised by record entry fees, teas on the day, raffles and other community involvement.
