Four-year-old Cally Simpson, fondly known as Cally B, has made it back to Scotland with her family following a tragic accident in Spain.

Cally was pulled unconscious from a swimming pool in the Salou resort on June 24 when on holiday with her father, Steven Simpson.

It is understood Cally was rushed to the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu children’s hospital in Barcelona and placed in an induced coma.

Her mother Kate had been prevented from travelling to Spain as the result of strike action among French air industry workers, but eventually reached her daughter’s bedside in Barcelona on June 27.

Despite an update on July 7 reporting that she managed to breath for three hours on her own, her parents announced on the Saving Cally Simpson Facebook page that they had received some devastating news: “The doctors have said that its improbable that Cally will ever wake up, but we are not giving up hope at all. There are doctors all over the world and we want a second, third, and fourth opinion.”

Friends and family are pulling together again to raise more money to support Cally’s parents during this challenging time.

An evening of mediumship with James Cameron is being held at the Cliffburn Hotel in Arbroath on Friday at 7.30 p.m. Tickets are £10 at the door and there will be a raffle.

Cally’s aunt, Kerry Miller, has made an emotional plea for people to donate prizes. Dig deep and come along.
