A FUNDRAISING drive to help a young Peebles girl to lift her head for the first time has been boosted this week by her granny's exercise class.

Scarlett Moore suffered several seizures in the hours following her birth in Dubai almost three years ago following a traumatic birth.

And for the first two weeks of her life she was placed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the Al Zahra hospital.

Scarlett's parents Chris and Laura Moore moved back to Peebles during the summer of 2016 to be closer to family.

An appeal to help fund specialist cerebral palsy treatment for Scarlett is now closing in on the £15,000 target.

And this week her granny, Margaret Corrigan, collected a further £200 donation from her exercise classmates as Macfarlane Movers.

Jean Westwater from Macfarlane Movers told us: "We were delighted to make a presentation of £200 this week from our tea fund, which is raised from donations for tea and coffee at the end of each class.

"Scarlett has severe and complex needs and the donation will go towards helping her."

The Macfarlane Movers meet every Wednesday at the Macfarlane Hall from 10.15am to 11am.

Since the over 60s group began donating the tea fund to local causes, it has handed over £12,200.
