STAFF and customers from a Port Glasgow store have pledged their support to the family of a 10-year-old schoolboy who collapsed and died.

Workers from the Co-op in Dubbs Road stepped into raise funds for Show Some Heart, the Tele-backed campaign in memory of Jayden Orr.

It is pushing to put defibrillators in all local schools and seeking to change the law so that all buildings over a certain size must have such a lifesaving device fitted as standard.

They organised raffles and a collection with customers, handing over £1,000 to the cause.

Jayden's mum Kathleen was moved by the gesture, a year since she set up the charity to fight for change after losing her ten-year-old son.

Co-op store assistant Catherine Greig said: "We were all so fond of Jayden.

"He used to come in the shop after school with his mum all the time.

"We wanted to do something positive to support them and all our customers have been right behind us.

"Jayden lived just round the corner.

"I think what his family are doing is incredible."

Campaigner Kathleen and her husband John, daughter Kerri and son Declan have raised more than £20,000 to put defibs into schools after setting up their Jayden's Rainbow charity.

Kathleen, 43, from Port Glasgow said: "This is a great amount of money raised by the Co-op and we really appreciate the support.

"The people of Inverclyde have been amazing."

Port schoolboy Jayden died in August 2017 after collapsing while at ice skating practice.

Since then the family have raised money to put defibs in to school and taken their law change bid to the Scottish Parliament, where they were praised by MSPs from all parties.
