A total of 25 bags of litter were collected from in and around Tesco car park on Sunday to raise money for charity.

Lee McKillop and three friends – Matthew McKay, Adrian Rowe and Claire Rizos, spent two hours picking up the rubbish in order to raise money for the Sophie North Charitable Trust.

Speaking on Sunday about the amount of litter, Lee said: ‘It is absolutely disgusting. It is unbelievable.’

The Sophie North Charitable Trust commemorates the 16 children, including five-year-old Sophie North, and their teacher who lost their lives in the Dunblane massacre 21 years ago.

Last year, Lee carried out three litter picks for the trust and plans on doing the same this year.

‘I am going to do another one in February,’ she said. ‘And then I will either be doing one in March or one as part of the Oban Spring Clean.’
