A TEENAGER from Dalgety Bay has made a wish for a little girl with a life-threatening condition following a fundraising night.

Logan Dowie, 18, started organising the evening to meet the requirements of her Fife College course, but watched it grow into a much bigger event after meeting six-year-old Faith Hogg.

The primary school pupil, who lives with her mum, Kaylin MacDuff, and step-dad, Michael Russell, in Kirkcaldy, was born with Biliary Atresia, a childhood disease which affects the liver.

When she was just four-weeks-old, she had a failed procedure on her gall bladder before being given a liver transplant in 2017.

Her mum says that, recently, a biopsy showed that she has started to reject the organ, but there is no way to tell when she may need a new one.

Logan met the family through Michael's car valeting business – MJR Valets – and decided to give half the funds raised from her disco at Hugo's in Dalgety Bay towards the youngster, with the other half going to her originally-planned recipient, the Make a Wish Foundation.

And it was all a surprise for Kaylin and Michael – who knew about the fundraiser but didn't know that little Faith would benefit and had worked hard to gather raffle prizes for Logan.

Logan, who studies Beauty Therapy, told the Press: "I met them through valeting our car and asked them for raffle prizes. They brought up their daughter who was actually eligible for a wish and then I found out how ill she was.

"I didn't expect it (to go so well) at all, I was so surprised."

The student was helped by her mum, Nicola Dowie, to organise the night, which included a DJ set from Apollo Entertainment, who donated their time.

Thanks to a £500 donation from Dalgety Bay company Russell's Landscapes, the total raised reached a huge £1,140, spurring Logan on to continue fundraising and help Faith meet her wish of going to Disneyland.

"I was doing one (a fundraiser) through college as one of my assessments," she explained.

"On the day of the event, I was going to be on holiday so I asked and they said I'd have to do another one myself.

"We went on holiday and actually had to come back because my grandma passed, so I did that fundraiser anyway too.

"It was all worth it but it was stressful! I'm glad I did it."

Logan was also able to gift Faith a new bike – thanks to Halfords Dunfermline – which she was riding within minutes, despite "hiding to start with" when Logan and her mum visited to present her with the surprise.

"To see everyone supporting us was amazing," Kaylin said.

"It wasn't something we had thought about before (Make a Wish) but she's adamant she wants to see the princesses.

"It's scary, you never know how long she'll be here."
