Teenager Fionn Cook pitched in with a charity event on Lismore over the festive season and raised more than £1,168 for the Scottish Air Ambulance.

The 14-year-old Oban High School pupil organised a friendly Boxing Day football match on the island and a re-match on New year’s Day for those who could not make the first game.

Mum Laura Cook and sister Katie, 17, helped organise a raffle and donations from people on and off the island, and from the collection taken at the church’s Christmas Eve service also boosted funds.
