CHASING THEIR DREAM:Skating Farnhill sisters Jenny, left, and Hannah Lee

First published in

Two sisters have launched a fundraising campaign so they can compete in an international ice skating event for competitors with impairments.

Hannah Lee and younger sibling Jenny together need to raise £1,900 to take part in next month’s contest, in Iceland.

The pair have so far raised more than £800 through activities ranging from cake sales to bag packing.

Both sisters – from Farnhill – have taken part in international skating events at Dumfries and have won a haul of gold and silver medals.

But their dream is to take to the ice in Reykjavik in the latest global event, from May 23 to 25.

Hannah, 20, who has a rare heart condition which leaves her breathless and tired, took up skating about four years ago.

Jenny, 17, who is deaf and has a learning difficulty, followed in her skate tracks about a year later.

They will be continuing their fundraising with bag packing today and tomorrow at Morrisons, in Keighley. Anyone wishing to support them should call 07939 822798.
