In the past year Jackie, along with her son Mark Wilson who works at Fordel Service Station near Dalkeith, have been fundraising for the residents at Drummond Grange.

Over the past year they held a home baking sale and raffled off a luxury hamper.

The proceeds that they raised were doubled by the manager of Fordel Services, allowing Jackie and Mark to buy gifts for all the care home residents.
