COMPASSIONATE youngsters have raised money to help families in need across Inverclyde.

Inverclyde & District Battalion Boys' Brigade gifted £200 to the Children in Poverty charity.

Founder Pat Burke says the money will help families get away to Hunters Quay Holiday Village in the summer, if coronavirus restrictions permit.

Pat and the team take local children who are experiencing difficult times to the resort for a week break full of fun-filled activities.

He added: "This wonderful donation exemplifies is in-keeping with the BB organisation’s ethos of engaging children and young people in outdoor sport and recreation."
