CARING Milngavie youngster Max Frame has donated his birthday gifts to charity Sense Scotland for the second year running.

Little Max asked for those attending his sixth birthday party to make a little donation instead of bringing a present.

His chosen charity is a non-profit organisation which has been working with people with hearing and visual disabilities for the last 25 years.

Last year, Max raised around £150 for the cause and so decided to do the same this year.

Max invited most of his classmates from P2 at Craigdhu Primary School and together they raised £125.

His parents Kenny and Laura Frame donated a further £20, bringing the total to £145.

Mrs Frame explained how Max took inspiration from a Sense Scotland advert which aired this time last year.

She said: “Max had watched the ad last year with a little girl sitting on a roundabout only she couldn’t see and couldn’t hear.

“The advert said she lived in a ‘silent world’ and Max was really affected by it so he asked if there was anything he could do.

“He wanted to send them a Christmas present so I suggested he ask for donations instead of gifts at his birthday party.

“Well he really liked the idea and last year donated £150. He was so chuffed he got to send off some money and to get his picture in the paper.

“This year he decided to do it again because he really wants to help those kids. He’s a sensitive little chap is our Max.”

Max had a great party with all his friends and also received some unexpected gifts. Max was delighted with the amount raised thanks to the generosity of his friends.

Last year, Max’s brother Lewis similarly helped to raise £250 for Yorkhill Hospital by hosting a joint party along with a friend of his.

Laura also said Lewis would be hoping to do the same again this year around.
