THEY'LL be joining thousands of Scotland fans in Germany at the Euros but two good causes have benefited from the generosity of the Mossgreen and Crossgates Tartan Army before the competition's big kick off.

Members of the group, who will cheer on Steve Clarke's team when they open the tournament against the hosts on Friday, gathered at the weekend to hand over two donations of £250.

The beneficiaries of their fundraising were Crossgates Gala, and Wee Jamie's Journey, in aid of local boy, Jamie Tierney.

The five-year-old was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) in 2022 at the age of three.

There is no cure for the illness, which is found mainly in boys and affects all muscles, including lungs, heart and the brain, but treatment is available which could slow down its progress.

Since the diagnosis, Jamie's parents Bobbie and Jamie, along with their network of family and friends, have worked tirelessly to raise funds so the youngster can receive vital treatment which, it is hoped, will slow down the debilitating disease.

Neil Maxwell, chairman of the Scotland fans group, said: "We have a proud history in Mossgreen and Crossgates Tartan Army of making charitable donations in the village.

"Over the years we have made over £5,000 of donations to many deserving causes and, to mark our return to a major overseas European Championships, we are donating £250 to Crossgates Gala and £250 to Wee Jamie's Journey.

"The donation to Crossgates Gala is a no-brainer as they do so much to benefit the village and put in so much hard work. The donation to Wee Jamie's Journey is just a wee bit different as they are fighting all the way to get Jamie treatment for Muscular Dystrophy."
