AN initiative set up in memory of a “happy wee boy” who tragically lost his life say nominations for its Christmas Eve toy delivery have now opened.

Grayson’s Gift has teamed up with community group Old Kilpatrick Food Parcels (OKFP) to go out and about in West Dunbartonshire the night before Santa arrived to hand out gifts to some lucky families.

In September, the Clydebank Post told the story of Grayson, who sadly stopped breathing just days before Christmas last year.

Mum Cheryl Murray and Dad Graeme Fraser vowed to create a legacy to remember their young lad and have so far raised nearly £10,000 through their fundraising activities.

And now they hope to continue helping those who may be struggling at a difficult time of year.

Denise Campbell, a childhood friend of Cheryl’s and who sits on the Grayson’s Gift committee, said: “If you know a child, family or individual that has had a tough time this year and would benefit from receiving a wee treat for Christmas, please send us an email with details on why you are nominating them.”

The team at Grayson’s Gift have managed to raise £9,126.93 so far.

A race day at the Cabin Bar raised £1,470.66 with a subsequent blue bucket collection bringing in £263.09.

A charity football match held last month as well as an upcoming skydive by Denise’s husband Derek has also contributed to the total.

Maureen Cummings, founder at OKFP, added: “We are honoured to be partnering with Grayson’s Gift this Christmas and we hope to help spread lots of joy to families throughout West Dunbartonshire.”

Denise explained the gifts would be a value of around £20 per person and hoped they would be able to help cheer up families who need an extra treat this festive year.
