Harry Gray became the youngest person of the many hundreds to have pledged support to Strathcarron Hospice during lockdown when he rolled down his garden hill 150 times – and collected £2105 in the process.

His mum, Hannah, who works as a compassionate community builder at the Fankerton facility, said: “We were just looking for something to do to make ourselves a bit more useful in lockdown and Harry loves rolling down the hill in our garden.

“It took him two weeks but we got a bit held up by the rain!”

The Stirling resident added: “The fundraising is absolutely vital to just ensure the running of the hospice for the future.

“It’s our 40th birthday next year so it would be great to have many more years to come but it’s so uncertain at the moment with our fundraising activities being cancelled.

“We were only aiming for £150 as about £20 pays for an hour’s worth of nursing.

“People don’t have to aim for the sky. Every bit helps.”
