The family of a Dunbar man who died after developing oesophageal cancer are fundraising for a charity which promotes awareness of the disease.

Lorry driver Malcolm Hutchison of Letham Road, a grandad of two, passed away in October at the age of 57 after suffering a blood clot which went into his lung.

His children Meg (22), a gym instructor at Whitekirk Golf and Country Club, Keith (35), a global HR business partner with the National Grid, and soldier Ronald (37), who serves with the Royal Engineers, are now raising funds in aid of the charity Ochre in his memory.

Meg explained: “My brothers and I decided that we would do something for the charity Ochre when dad died. The surgeon who actually did dad’s operation is part of the charity, so that’s why we got the link.”

Keith hopes to run marathon while Meg, a keen dancer, held a ceilidh at Hallhill Healthy Living Centre which attracted a 90-strong crowd and raised £900 for Ochre.
