Children of Linlithgow primary who bought malaria nets.


The Rotary Club of Linlithgow Grange recently donated a cheque for £200 to Erin Henderson of Linlithgow to help fund a new specialised trike.

Erin, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a result of a brain haemorrhage which occurred while in the womb, has difficulty with walking and balance.

The trike, a Tomcat Tiger is specially manufactured for those children with specific needs. This one, for example has a seat designed to take account of Erin’s needs.

It also features a steering control at the rear along with an emergency brake meaning Erin’s mum, Heather, can take charge when required.

lLast year Linlithgow primary chose the Anti Malaria Foundation as its charity.

The foundation raises funds to buy anti-malarial nets for countries in 
sub-saharan Africa. Each net costs £3 and protects up to three people in a family unit.

The school held various events raising £3300 to buy over 1000 nets.

lLinlithgow ladies’ group, Tangent hosted the annual inter-club quiz on Friday, February 14, at the local golf club.

Ten teams participated, with the rugby club running out overall winners and 41 Club retaining the Round Table Trophy. The photograph shows the victorious teams with the quiz organisers.
