The final total raised by a group of Arbroath schoolchildren during a sponsored walk from Arbroath to Westhaven has been announced.

Hayshead pupils Lauren Cunningham, Zoe Evans, Fiona Gordon, Jessica Gordon, Jemma McCagh, Megan High and Alyssa McKay realised £719 for the Blake McMillan Trust.

Toddler Blake was born with MECP2 Duplication Syndrome, a rare condition with severe life-limiting effects.

The girls were inspired to raise money by their teacher Mrs Hovell who is also Blake’s step-grandmother.

They were met at the end by Blake and his family.
