Charity fundraiser

A NEWARTHILL woman who lost her son to cot death more than 20 years ago is urging people to support an event organised by the charity that helped her deal with the loss.

Marie Green has supported the Scottish Cot Death Trust for over two decades after losing her son Mark on January 22, 1990.

The charity is holding an afternoon tea at 1pm in the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow on Saturday, November 12 and Marie will be attending the event as an avid supporter and hopes that other people from this area will too.

Tickets cost £30 or if you book 10 tickets you will get a reduced rate of £25.
