FAMILY and friends of a Dunfermline man have raised nearly £9,000 for charity following his death.

Calum Reid had just turned 21 when he died in August 2017 after a struggle with mental health issues.

A football match was held in his honour this August as his loved ones continue to fundraise for Support in Mind Scotland.

They have so far raised £8,888 as well as promoting mental health awareness.

Calum’s mum, Laura, said: “The last year has been the most difficult of my life, but thanks to the fantastic support of friends, family and Calum’s group of amazing friends, we have been able to raise some more money for a subject very close to all our hearts.

"We intend to keep the fundraising going with various events throughout the year.”

Calum’s friend Conor Gray, who helped organise the memorial match, said: “We want to encourage people to talk before it’s too late.

"We want to help people realise that they are not alone and there is nothing that cannot be overcome, whether it be financial issues, addictions or just a lack in self-confidence.

"Our way of helping is to do as much as we can for our chosen charity Support in Mind Scotland.”

The charity's Colin Leslie said: “We would like to thank everyone who attended and supported the event. The money will be used to deliver crucial services to people affected by mental illness.”
