Having learned of the Nancy Glen disaster, a pair of Drumlemble primary pupils wanted to help.

Mirrin MacLennan and Sophie Bell, aged eight, will walk the six miles of a Kintyre beach in a bid to raise funds.

Mum Aileen said: ‘Mirrin told me about a poster they made for the quiz in aid of the Nancy Glen, and said she would like to help raise funds. She decided on a sponsored walk from Westport to Machrihanish.’

Aileen used Facebook to invite sponsorship, and Sophie’s mum, Amanda Jane, made contact as Sophie wanted to help too.

‘It made sense for the girls to team up’: said Amanda. ‘They are so caring and I’m proud of them both.’

Aileen agreed: ‘They are lovely, thoughtful little girls and have already raised more than £700.’

Mirrin’s brother Harris, aged five, and Sophie’s sister CJ, aged six, will join in the walk.

Sponsorship forms are available in Rab’s Chippy, Shore Street, and the Ardshiel Hotel, #TT100BRINGOURBOYSHOME
