Caring Bank of Scotland staff and customers in Kirkcaldy have given a marvellous boost to a charity in aid of a local teenager.

Adam’s Odyssey is an appeal for 14-year-old Adam Meldrum, who has specific needs because of a chromosome abnormality. A wheelchair user, he is registered blind and cannot walk. In addition, to help his breathing overnight, he uses a nasopharyngeal tube to keep his airways open. Adam needs a specialist bed to keep him safe and comfortable at night – and 12 staff at the bank’s Mitchelston branch saddled up for a half-hour session each on an exercise bike, raising nearly £1100. It was an enormously successful fun day, with cake and candy stall and children’s activities too. Adam’s mum, Lynne Scott, who was there with Adam and his stepdad, Gavin Scott, said the family was deeply grateful for the support received from the community since the appeal began.
