A Tayside mum has launched a campaign to create a playground for children with disabilities.
Claire Wilkie is mum to eight-year-old Maisie, who suffers from cerebral palsy.
Due to her disability, the youngster is unable to play in any playparks in her local area in Perth.
This means Maisie and Claire must make a journey to St Andrews or Dunfermline to find playparks with suitable equipment.
Claire said: “I need to raise £60,000 for disabled children’s playpark items and it would be good if they could be erected at the park next to Bell’s Sports Centre on Perth’s North Inch as the centre has changing rooms.
“So far I have raised just over £5,000 with £320 being the latest amount taken in.
“That was given at a cake, candy and bake sale held in the Co-op on Perth’s Rannoch Road on Saturday. People were very generous, with some handing in a donation without taking any of the treats.
“The money received at the Co-op took my total so far to £5,600 raised, which is a good start considering I have been fundraising for just a few months.
“Among the other fundraisers lined up is a netball tournament at Perth College on September 30 and a coffee morning in November.
“The equipment I am seeking to purchase will not only benefit Maisie but other disabled children too.”
Maisie attends Fairview School in Perth, a special school which caters for children and young people with with severe and complex additional support needs.
