ERSKINE FUND RAISER: Lily’s Challenge for her 10th Birthday

By Judith Haw

 After which she can enjoy her birthday, as much cake as she wants and a well-earned rest.

Lily who is in Primary 5 at Balloch Primary School, chose to fundraise for Erskine as her dad Andrew is a former serviceman and the family knew a friend who last year passed away in an Erskine Home.

Lily has set a fundraising target of £500 and is already 90% on target.

Erskine Community Fundraiser Colin McPhail said: “It is wonderful that Lily has come up with this unique challenge and we are incredibly impressed with her kindness and thoughtfulness. Our residents will be so touched to learn that Lily is walking every day to raise money for them and we are all cheering her on all the way.

“At Erskine we need to raise over 10 million pounds annually, so the support of community fundraisers like Lily is really important to our vital work caring for Veterans.”
