A Polmont gran decided to get her first tattoo last week - at the age of 60.

Lawson Eades celebrated her landmark birthday by getting sponsored to have a heart-shaped musical note tattooed on her neck, raising funds and awareness for Forth Valley Sensory Centre in Camelon.

Lawson, who is registered blind said: “I wanted to do something different to mark my birthday.

“I’m on the board of directors at the Sensory Centre and I thought it would be a way to raise money for them as well.

“It was a wee bit sore, but I’m glad I did it.”

Lawson, who sings with the Heart of Scotland Choir and a choir at the Sensory Centre, had the tattoo done last Friday in Falkirk, and her new look has been welcomed by her family, including husband Chris.

Joanne Aitken, Sensory Centre manager said: “Lawson is a great champion of the centre and we appreciate all the hard work she does for us!

“The Sensory Centre was opened to make a difference to people with a visual, hearing or dual sensory impairment. We provide advice, information, practical help and support.

“Recently, we have been developing new services and activities and welcome people to come along and visit us.”
