A YOUNG couple turned their fairytale romance into a fundraiser in memory of schoolboy Jayden Orr.

Caring Kim Melvin was over the moon when her long-time boyfriend proposed to her.

As they celebrated with a party, she decided to ask for donations to the Jayden's Rainbow charity, instead of gifts, in memory of the youngster who tragically collapsed and died last year while ice skating.

She even organised a raffle on the night of her own party to help the cause.

Kim, 22, who is a care support worker, said: "I just wanted to do something to help as I am friends with Jayden's sister Kerri.

"We have a flat and already have everything we could ever need.

"I don't need anything so we wanted to do this instead.

"I wanted to help Kathleen with her campaign.

"Jayden was a lovely boy and it was so sad what happened.

"I think it is amazing what they are trying to do."

On the night at the RAF Club in Greenock Kim and her fiance James Gallacher, 23, raised an incredible £425 for the charity set up by Jayden's family.

The Orrs have teamed up with the Tele for the Show Some Heart campaign to put defibrillators into every school in Inverclyde in memory of ten-year-old Jayden.

Kim added: "It has been so difficult for them and I just wanted to show Kathleen that I cared.

"I don't know how she is managing it."

Kim and James,e who stay in Greenock's King Street, hope that their happiest moment can help bring some comfort to Kathleen.

James, a labourer, proposed to Kim, his girlfriend of six years, at her 21st in June last year, another fundraiser for a charity

She said: "I had no idea what was happening!

"I asked for money for the Ardgowan Hospice at my 21st birthday."

Kim is now devoting all her time to planning her wedding, which she hopes will be in two years.

But she added: "I have promised Kathleen I will help fundraise for her."
