Local man Brian Watt recently held a retirement party and asked for donations in place of gifts.
The total amount raised was £300 and it was donated to the Cystinosis Research Foundation.
Pictured with Brian, who is on the right, are Lena Forsyth, Roy Forsyth, Cystinosis Research Foundation chairperson, and Olivia Lamarsh who is Brian’s great niece.
Both Lena and Olivia suffer from the condition so the money donated will go towards helping them and many others.
The Foundation was set up in 1998 and since then it has been raising money and awareness of the condition as well as providing patients with advice and support.
