In mem­ory of tragic Emily

The Galloway News - - NEWS -

Two school­girls raised more than £500 in mem­ory of their tragic pal.

Sarah Green­way and Kee­ley Maxwell, who are in sixth year at Dal­beat­tie High, took part in a spon­sored walk.

The money will be used for a memo­rial bench for their friend Emily Brown, who would have been 18 to­day.

Emily, who at­tended Dal­beat­tie Pri­mary and Lang­lands School in Dum­fries, died in May.

Six weeks be­fore her death she was di­ag­nosed with Rett Syn­drome, a ge­netic dis­or­der that af­fects the brain.
