Machars charity fundraiser Ethel Brolls is showcasing her ‘Children of the World’ appeal in the Whithorn community window just now.

Ethel told The Galloway Gazette: “I would like to thank all the loyal friends of the appeal. In particular Mrs Margaret Elkin for all her skills in making the window so colourful and impressive and also to Chic Laing who transports all the boxes to the Blytheswood care lorry.”

So far this year Ethel’s charity has donated over 4000 items to the underprivileged and disadvantaged children of the world and she was delighted recently to be asked to crochet blankets for premature babies born in ambulances en route to the region’s maternity units.

The display will be on view until July.
