A group of young Carnoustie footballers helped raise over £800 for one of their teammates at the weekend.
The boys from the Carnoustie Panmure Under-13s squad raised the total packing bags and shaking buckets at the Co-op on Saturday in aid of their friend and former goalkeeper Jake Whyte who has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.
The money will be presented to Jake’s family and will help with travel expenses, games, books and music for Jake during his treatment at the Edinburgh Sick Children’s Hospital.
Manager Derek Millar said: “When the boys became aware of Jake’s condition they wanted to do something to help.
“We thought we’d raise enough for a few computer games but the community have been fantastic.
“The public sometimes give the kids a hard time but if they saw our boys at the Co-op today they would have been as proud as we were. We can only hope that this money can help Jake and his family at this difficult time.”
