TV star Colin McCredie admitted he was ‘blown away’ by three young carers when he visited CHILDREN 1ST’s Midlothian Young Carers service recently.
Colin, of ‘Taggart’ and ‘Wooly and Tig’ fame, visited the service in Dalkeith in his role as Ambassador for People’s Postcode Lottery, whose players have raised more than £2.2 million for the charity to date.
He heard first-hand from teenagers Becca McLaren, Rebecca Martin and Liam Dobbie what it’s like looking after a family member with long-term illness or disability and how the service has helped.
Colin said: “Quite frankly I was blown away by the great work that the team do and by the fantastic young people who have such a positive outlook on life.”
