Caring students at Dundee and Angus College put their best foot forward for a fashion show to help a Montrose boy who has a rare health condition.

A total of 30 students based on the Arbroath Campus staged a fund-raising fashion show to raise money for five-year-old Aidan.

Aidan has severe developmental verbal dyspraxia, a rare neurological disorder, and needs specialised treatment and equipment.

Among the students in the fashion show was Aidan’s sister, Megan (16).

The event raised £180 and was organised by Learner Engagement Modern Apprentice, Demi Crowley.

The clothes were provided by Arbroath fashion retailers New Look, Officers Club and Kofo.

Aidan and his mum Debbie were at the event.

She said: “Megan was taking part in the fashion show and another student suggested they do it aid of Aidan.

“We want to thank all the students, it was really nice of them. It was a good show and Aidan enjoyed himself.”

On Saturday (April 5), 20 people doing a bungee jump off of a bridge in Killiecrankie, in Perthshire, to raise funds for Aidan.

In the evening at the Black Abbot, in Montrose, two Premier League Darts at the AECC’s GE Oil & Gas Arena, in Aberdeen, will be raffled off.
