A GALA dinner in honour of a teenager who died from a rare disease has raised almost £6000 for the charity which bears her name.
Lauren Currie, from Kilmarnock, was just 15 years old when she was diagnosed with vasculitis, an incurable group of disorders which inflame and destroy blood vessels. Although she had been poorly on and off for a number of years, she was only diagnosed 48 hours before she sadly passed away.

What I have to say: I am so sorry to hear about the death of 15 year old Lauren. This disease can attack young children and teenagers too. All my condolences to the family. And, they are doing a good thing for others with the disease.
