A LOCAL man has donated £1,400 to Anna Ritchie school after a collection was held at his late wife Alyson’s funeral.

Alexander Ledingham, better known as Sandy, appeared at the school on Wednesday with his grandson George and the cheque, which he presented to Headteacher Ishbel Cruickshank.

Sandy said: “My son attended here years ago, George comes here for swimming and my wife cared for a pupil here before too.

“We have connections to the school so thought it was a good idea.”

Ishbel said: “We are very grateful to the family for their thought of the school.”
