Party for a good cause

Two local mums are celebrating their children's birthdays tomorrow by making a difference and raising money for charity.

Kirsty Lawson and Jo Drew are hosting a party for their children, but aren't asking for birthday presents. Instead, they have asked attendees to donate money to CHAS, the Children's Hospice Association Scotland. Ms Lawson said: "Our kids have enough presents. We wanted to do something more beneficial."

Last year, they raised a total of 235.
