FORMER Voice of Fife contestants have helped to buy a special car seat for a Fife youngster who suffers from two rare medical conditions.

Contestants who have previously taken part in Voice of Fife events, organised by the Fife Free Press Group, joined forces to raise funds for little Erin Jarrett who suffers from micocephaly and West syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy.

They wanted to buy her a special car seat that would give her the support she needs in order to enjoy the view from the window, as well as donate money to Kilmaron School in Cupar, which Erin attends.

The idea for the CD, called ‘Erin’s Friends - the Young and the Old’, came from contestant George Aitken, who is well-known locally as an entertainer.

He heard about Erin’s plight from her grandmother and was so touched that he tracked down the other Voice of Fife contestants who had performed at the live show in Kitty’s, Kirkcaldy.

The CD was released last February. George said £1400 was raised through sales of the CD as well as gigs he had organised. He said: “We were really pleased to be able to help.”
