TWO big-hearted Black Isle sisters have taken a growing interest and used it to provide a welcome boost for other children.

Alexa and Savannah Gordon used the lockdown period productively by putting their green fingers to good use and growing garden produce.

Alexa (8) and Savannah, of Rosefarm in Cromarty, are used to living off the land and help out with potato and egg vending machines run by the family business. The family runs The Egg Box which proved a lifeline for many at the height of the lockdown.

They decided to do something to recognise the contribution of NHS staff and raised £130.

They now have strawberry plants available in return for donations and have already been delighted by one very kind person who left £25 last week. The money is going to the children's unit at Raigmore Hospital.

Well-wishers have taken to social media to commend their efforts. One posted: "Well done girls. I’m sure the children’s ward will be delighted with your lovely donation."

Another stated: "Splendid! Well done the pair of you!"
