Brora schoolgirl's hen show gives a boost to animal charity
A YOUNG Sutherland girl has raised more than £300 for the Scottish SPCA after holding a fun chicken show at the Doll Hall, Brora.
Libby Roseveare (10), a p6 pupil at Brora Primary School, organised the event which saw some eight chickens and their owners compete in various competitions.
Judging the chicken classes was Elisa Miller, Ardgay, who had the difficult task of choosing the various winners including the prettiest, scruffiest and best-dressed chickens. Winners were awarded certificates, badges and stickers, given to Libby by the SSPCA.
There was also contests for the best drawing, decorated egg and decorated cage.
And Libby, who has her own flock of 16 chickens, also organised a big raffle with donations from individuals and businesses.
The money raised is to be used by the Scottish SPCA to buy food for four cockerels it cannot rehome.
