We're making music for Millie

Musical youngsters put their talent to good use when they held an impromptu busking session in Falkirk High Street.

The youngsters, all students of Larbert music teacher Karen Blackwood, were joined by her three sons, Arran, Harrison and Lewis, for the two-hour session.

Their aim was to raise as much money as possible for Millie’s Journey, the fund set up to help provide further treatment for four-year-old Millie McColl from Airth.

She was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma last year and, although now in remission, her family is raising the money so she can access a trial drug only available in America and which could stop the disease returning.

Thanking everyone for taking part and donating so generously, Karen said: “We managed to raise £1115.34. The family are so grateful.”
