CHILDREN with additional support needs and their families are set to get a holiday thanks to a Kilmacolm businessman.

Entrepreneur John Laird and his wife Michelle have stepped in to donate £3,000 to a local children's charity.

Thanks to the generous gift will give families from Hillend Children's Centre the chance to experience a much needed break.

John and his family regularly donate to Children in Poverty Inverclyde who organise the holidays.
