A HOLYTOWN housewife, who had trouble with numbers and telling the time, features in a new campaign which encourages others to get help like she did.

Amanda Blair has joined the BIG Plus campaign, which is aimed at the many thousands of Scots who have trouble with reading, writing or numbers.

The 30-year-old mum previously featured in STV’s “It’s Never Too Late” series which was broadcast last year where viewers saw her long-term struggle with numbers and time.

In that series she revealed that her sons, Taylor (13), Aidan (11) and Aaron (9), had to help her work out timings when she cooked family dinners.
