The latest in a series of fund-raising events for Craigrothie youngster Ritchie Horrocks takes place in Kirkcaldy next Saturday (May 5).

Moira and David Horrocks hope to be able to convert their home to make it more suitable for their three-year-old son who has a rare form of short-limbed dwarfism.

The family has already received support from Glenrothes businesswoman Pauline To as well as a Fife architect, a housebuilder, an electrician and an artist.

Now the appeal is set to benefit from a fund-raising day being held at Haru, 7 Olympia Arcade, Kirkcaldy, from 10am-4pm.

The event includes therapies, massages, jewellery, glassware and crafts as well as complimentary refreshments.

Moira is also planning to run an online charity auction from May 12-9 to add to the fund-raising total.

Items for auction include lunch for two at the Peat Inn, family passes for the Scottish Deer Centre and Cairnie Fruit Farm, afternoon tea for two at the Caledonian Hotel in Edinburgh plus a variety of other goodies.

She said: “I am totally overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of everyone who has donated prizes.

“I am so grateful that so many local businesses have also shown their support and want to make our dream achievable.”
