Motion text

That this House congratulates 16 year old Laura Campbell from Oban who through her campaign, Laura's Appeal, successfully persuaded 212 local people, including 101 of her fellow pupils at Oban High School, to register as potential bone marrow donors; applauds the remarkable support given to Laura and her family by the people of Oban and Lorn, particularly the contribution of Watch Manager, John Sweeny, and everyone at the Oban Community Fire Station, who gave up so much of their time to make the appeal such a success; further applauds Laura's selflessness in launching the appeal despite already having a suitable bone marrow donor in place; commends her bravery given that this is the third time in her young life that Laura has had to fight leukemia; and sends its very best wishes to Laura as she is currently undergoing treatment in the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Glasgow.
