Funds raised for troubled turtles

Two kind-hearted youngsters presented a cheque for £100 to the Marine Conservation Society, after being inspired by Sea Champions at last years Dunbar Science Festival.

Sea Champion Sarah Conner (pictured below) talked to the girls last year about the plight of sea turtles, and the impact of beach litter in our oceans.

Elsie Brennan and her friend Isla Tierney, both 10, decided enough was enough and wanted to help, so they decided to raise money for these animals. Over the past year, they have been busy with various fundraising tasks, including a running a stand at their school fair and donating their pocket money. Toughest of all was a month-long sponsored sugar ban!

Elsie and Isla presented the cheque to Sea Champion Sarah at this years Dunbar Science Festival.
