The Buckstone Primary School pupil made her first one for her great-grandmother Margaret.

After seeing how overjoyed the 92-year-old was at the gift, Devon decided to spread the worldwide craze inspired by the singer’s anthem ‘You’re On Your Own, Kid’ to elderly residents across the city.

She has since spent more than 50 hours making hundreds of bracelets ahead of Swift’s three shows at Murrayfield this weekend.
