Young hair­dresser loses `brave fight’

The Oban Times - - News -

THE FU­NERAL of Kelly Mac­Don­ald was to be held yesterday (Wed­nes­day) af­ter she lost her bat­tle with can­cer.

Friends of the 29-year- old raised thou­sands of pounds through a num­ber of events, in­clud­ing a walk up Ben Ne­vis, to fund pri­vate health care for the Fort Wil­liam hair­dresser.

Kelly passed away last Wed­nes­day (Septem­ber 9) af­ter what fam­ily mem­bers called a ‘brave and dig­ni­fied fight’. It is thought the money raised will now be do­nated to lo­cal char­i­ties. The fu­neral was due to be held at St John’s RC church in Caol.
