WHEN little Libby Howard from Kirriemuir heard her friends at Northmuir Nursery would like a see-saw to play on, she swung in to action to make sure their dream came true.

The youngster, who has just turned four, gathered up her pennies and decided to do a sponsored walk round Forfar Loch to raise the £100 needed for the see-saw.

Last Friday she and her proud mum and dad, Lisa and Andy, made a special trip through to Dundee to purchase the playground equipment, and went along to the nursery to deliver it.

Lisa explained: “When Libby heard her friends wanted a see-saw, she came straight home and started looking for pennies all around the house.

“When we asked what she was doing she said she wanted to find pennies to buy the see-saw, so we decided to organise a sponsored walk round Forfar Loch which we did on May 19 and raised £99.60.”

Libby was joined by her family and close friends for the walk, and she also put her own money towards buying the see-saw which proved so popular when it was unveiled last week that the children had to take turns and be timed on it!

Lisa added: “We are very proud of Libby. We made her a cake and she got a trophy to say “well done”. We are all over the moon. Libby is a very kind little girl who shares everything. She would like to thank all the people who sponsored her.”
