Nursery pupils in Roslin recently took part in a ‘tartan toddle’ to raise money for the Scotland football fans’ children’s charity.

Forest Friends Nursery pupils donned kilts and waved Scotland flags on a walk to raise £450 for the cause.

Miranda Slaven, deputy manager at the nursery, said: “Earlier this year I became an ambassador for the The Tartan Army children’s charity and as I’m deputy manager here, I organised a fundraiser.

“The charity organises trips for disadvantaged children in Scotland to go to Hampden to see a Scotland match for the first time.

“Many of these children have learning disabilities and come from disadvantaged backgrounds so it’s a very rewarding experience for them.

“And when Scotland play an away match £5,000 is given to a children’s charity in that country.

“I like the idea of children helping children. So my little ones did their own version of a kilt walk, ‘a tartan toddle’, and we had a special tea party when we returned. We really enjoyed the day and raised an amazing £450.”
