A young Ballater girl has raised £1109 so far from her annual tea party in aid of a diabetes charity.

Lizzie Scripps, 11, has been a type 1 diabetic since she was 18 months and recently held her family’s 10th event in support of the InDependent Diabetes Trust.

Mum Cat said: “We had a fabulous day on the Green and raised £1,109 on the day, with more donations for the InDependent Diabetes Trust still coming in.”

The proceeds will go towards the Dream Trust, which assists children with type 1 diabetes in developing countries.
