Bill Houston's last cheque

Bellshill war veteran Bill Houston is pictured with his final donation of £1,600 for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust which he collected at the Aldi store in Mossend.

With Bill (centre, left) are staff members (l-r) Nikki Tevan, Hugh Friel, Thomas Heaney, Shannon Feeney and his wife Betty. Bill, who has also raised thousands of pounds for Combat Stress and Poppyscotland, is giving up fundraising due to ill-health.

He said: “From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank all the kind people who have donated to my Forces’ charities over the years.”
