A donation of more than £1,200 was presented to the UK’s largest diabetes charity at Apple Tree Nursery in Rothesay this week.

The money was raised by island resident Christine McArthur on a sponsored cycle from Wemyss Bay to Stranraer in May, although the job of presenting the cheque for £1,268 to Susie Williamson from Diabetes Scotland - the Scottish branch of Diabetes UK - fell to young Mia Melvin from Rothesay, who has Type 1 diabetes and who attends Apple Tree.

“Apple Tree Nursery is a very good example of what we would like to see in all schools and nurseries,” Susie said, “in terms of helping children with diabetes adjust to the condition and helping others to understand it.”
