A Banff boy whose father had a stroke at the young age of 25 has raised more then £3,500 to help other stroke survivors.
Brodie Stewart has been on a mission to raise money for Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland, a charity close to his family.
He was just four when his 25-year-old dad Barclay Stewart had a stroke in December 2017, losing the ability to move the right hand side of his body and struggling to speak.
But with support from his family Mr Stewart managed to walk again and, after a few weeks, regained the ability to speak.
Now, in a bid to help others who survived strokes, six-year-old Brodie has been raising money, taking on the Run Garioch 600 metres race in March and hosting a coffee morning with the help of his mum Lisa.
In total, the youngster has now raised more than £3,500 for the charity.
He said: “It was really fun running the race and doing it to help my dad.
“I want to help lots of people. I don’t want anyone else’s dad to have a stroke.”
His family have been moved by his fundraising efforts, with dad Barclay feeling proud of his hard work.
Mr Stewart said: “It was a really scary time for me when I had the stroke and so to see Brodie go out there and make a difference to other people’s lives because of it makes me so proud.
“He’s an amazing kid.
“Having a stroke changes things. It makes you look at your health, your life and family and make those adjustments you need to be healthier.”
