A CLACKS mum has raised more than £1000 as a thank you to her son's nursery.

Logan Scobbie was born 16 weeks premature and a result has cerebral palsy and learning difficulties.

The youngster, who turns four at the end of the month, is hard of hearing and cannot talk – but hasn't let that hold him back.

He has been attending Tillicoultry Primary School Nursery for around a year and has come on leaps and bounds during his time there.

To mark the incredible work of staff, mum Adela Webster and friend Seonaid Ferris held a charity event last month.

The 42-year-old said he loves the teachers, being around other children at the nursery and attending has helped his development.

He is more able to use his walker, has a group of friends and relished being able to take part in Halloween activities, sports day and gym.

She said: “I'm just really happy with how the nursery have dealt with him and how they have taken them under their wing – he is just so happy to go there.

“They have just been amazing with him and what they have done with him. They have just treated him like any other little boy”.

The charity event was held at the rugby club in Tillicoultry on Saturday, February 4 and provided music from Scottish band Skirlie.

There were lots of wonderful prizes up for grabs in the raffle, from retailers at Sterling Mills and more.

There was also the chance to snap up a meal at the Dunmar House in Alloa which came complete with a bottle of wine.

It raised a grant total of £1400 which will purchase more sensory items for all children of different abilities to play with in the years to come; a wooden rocking horse was also donated.

Adela and Seonaid would like to thank everyone who donated and attended the event to help raise the funds.
