A PORT Glasgow woman is pleading with people to support her friend in his hour of need.

Christina Forrester today issued a renewed appeal for the community to donate to a Go Fund Me page set up in aid of her pal Mike Boustead.

She fears Mike may die without the life-saving heart surgery he needs.

Mike, from England, had been staying with Christina at her home in Pladda Avenue, after contracting Covid-19 while in hospital awaiting a bypass.

He has now been left in agony with kidney problems and will need treatment before his delayed operation can get the go-ahead.

Christina, 61, is trying to raise cash to help fund treatment privately.

The appeal can be found by searching Christina Forrester on Go Fund Me.
