A SIX-YEAR-OLD primary schoolboy visited Ninewells Hospital’s Accident & Emergency Department with his mum and dad on Tuesday when he presented a cheque for £80 to consultant Shobhan Thakore.

Ben Cudlipp was recently treated in the department after a fall in a local park in Carnoustie resulted in him breaking his elbow.

A pupil at Carlogie Primary School, he decided he wanted to say thank you to all the staff who had cared for him. With the help of his mum, Jenni Paterson, and dad, Paul Cudlipp, he completed a sponsored walk round Pitskelly Park.
