THE Lee O’Brien Solvent Trust (LOST) has received two early Christmas presents – donations totalling £13,000.
The Christina Mary Hendrie Trust donated £7000 and this was added to £6000 already received from the Robertson Trust.
The money will be used to employ a part-time development worker for the charity that was set up following Lee’s death, as a result of him inhaling cigarette lighter refill gas in 2002, when he was 16 years old.
It aims to prevent the deaths of more young people by offering education and support services to anyone affected by, or worried about Volatile Solvent Abuse.
The charity is run by Lee’s dad, John O’Brien, who has since become a Levenmouth councillor.
The Christina Mary Hendrie Trust is a family trust that supports young people. The Robertson Trust an independent grant-making trust.
