Kind Kirkhill Primary kids have given up birthday presents in honour of a fellow pupil.

Instead, P2 pupils Alexander Graham, Sophie Black, Zach Saldanha, Lochlann Davis and Andrew Laidlaw chose to donate all birthday money to Ayesha’s Appeal — an ongoing appeal for Ayesha Siddiqui, who has been searching for a bone marrow donor since a leukaemia diagnosis in 2011.

Ayesha’s mum Noreen told The Extra: “It’s pretty amazing when young children donate £160 instead of receiving birthday presents. Ayesha has had tremendous support from Kirkhill.”

Next up on the fundraising calendar is a family fun day at Broom Church on May 16, 2-4pm.
