MORE than 300 took part in a Glasgow charity walk to raise money for a seven-year-old girl with leukemia.
Ayesha Siddiqui started the 5K in Pollok Park, despite spending most of last week in Yorkhill Hospital For Sick Children.
The walkers raised £2500 for the Anthony Nolan charity, which is trying to find her a match for a bone marrow transplant.
Pupils from Ayesha's school, Kirkhill Primary in Newton Mearns, joined in to support their classmate.
Her dad, Nadeem, 50, said: "It was brilliant - about 300 came despite the rain. I am astonished at people's kindness and generosity."
Nadeem, a cancer doctor at the city's Royal Infirmary, said Ayesha was "full of beans" at the event.
He said: "She had a lovely time running around and blowing her whistle and acting like a marshal."
Ayesha was diagnosed with the illness last year and has been having chemotherapy, as previously reported in the Evening Times.
Although a million people have been tested, no match has been found for her.
None of her family – including brother Saif, 4, and mum Noreen, 47, a Glasgow Caledonian University lecturer – is suitable.
