The mother of a woman who was found dead in her Perth flat said she is “overwhelmed” at the support for fundraising in memory of her daughter.
Linda MacDonald’s daughter Lydia, 28, died in June after suffering an asthma attack.
Her three-year-old son, Mason, lay by her side in her Lickley Court flat.
A fundraising effort, mainly instigated by Perth takeaway owner Pete Chan of China China, has now passed £8,400.
A total of £3,000 will go to Mason while the rest will go to Asthma Research (Scotland).
The latest event was a boot camp held on the Fair City’s North Inch.
Entrants paid £5 each to be put through their paces by fitness instructors Mike Lindsay, Stef Bednarek and Gary Mulholland.
A total of £1,200 was raised, with the Perth branch of Santander donating the same.
Linda added: “I am so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love towards us by the people of Perth. A positive has come out of something negative.
“We appreciate so much the fact that the people of Perth have taken our situation to their hearts.”
Mr Chan said: “Money has been coming in from Perth people who are based all over the world.
“The response has been fantastic. We have had donations from Perth folk in Dubai, Australia and London as well as the local area.
“People were really touched by the tragic death of Lydia and by the fact that Mason was by her side for some time after her death.
“When Mason is old enough to know what happened it will be nice for him to know how Perth people cared for him.”
