YOUNGSTERS at Ladywell Primary School in Motherwell have made a bumper donation to charity in memory of a former pupil.
As reported in the Times, Caden Beggan (6) sadly passed away in November following a battle with meningococcal septicaemia at Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow.
During his time at the hospital, friends and pupils at Ladywell embarked on a number of fundraising events and donated over £1,000 to Yorkhill.
And they have just made a massive donation of £7,000 from the proceeds of a single recorded by the choir and released through iTunes to Meningitis Research Scotland.
