Alzheimer’s Society says relatives in ‘despair’ at England’s restrictions against over-65s.

A kind-hearted youngster has created his own DVD after restrictions and falling temperatures made it impossible for him to continue to perform at care homes.

Mark Morrison performed for residents at facilities throughout West Dunbartonshire just before lockdown was first announced in March, spreading joy at a particularly tough time.

And he has continued to cheer up those at care homes through performances, when guidelines have allowed.

But in September it became clear his shows had to be adapted.

The 15-year-old from Old Bonhill came up with the idea of producing a special DVD so residents could still enjoy his piping and singing for events such as St Andrew’s Day and Hogmanay despite the fact he couldn’t attend himself.

Proud mum Mhorag told the Lennox Herald: “The reason it came about is that he has been doing a lot of work up at Crosslet House. He was up there on the Friday of the September weekend and he was doing their closing ceremony as they had their own Olympics.

“He’s had a few requests from all of the local care homes to go and sing for St Andrews Day, Hogmanay and Burns Day.

“That was in the pipeline but when we were up there, we noticed it was getting colder.

“By about 2.30pm, it was too cold for the residents.

“It was him who said to me ‘they are all going in. It’s getting too cold’.

“Originally we thought he might have been able to play inside the care homes by Hogmanay but that’s not looking likely.

“We thought ‘let’s see what we can do’.”

Mark had been busking in Helensburgh on a regular basis before guidance advising against travel between local authority areas came into force last month and decided to use the money he raised from that to produce the DVD.

John Paul Lusk from Leven Films got on board as did Mark’s friend David Douglas.

The six-year-old from Alexandria, who he met through Singer Station, also performed some of the songs on the DVD which Mark hopes to distribute to all local care homes in the near future.

Although demand for the DVD has grown even further than the local area with requests from as far as down south for copies.

Mhorag said: “He has had quite a lot of interest. Some people have even asked to buy it.

“He had to get a copyright licence so we could sell it because the songs aren’t his original ones.”

Mark was due to pipe outside Morrisons in Dumbarton over Remembrance weekend but unfortunately had to postpone although he did donate 100 hand-knitted poppies to care home residents and to the Enable unit in Helensburgh.

His focus has now switched to spreading joy at Christmas.

He currently has a festive raffle running with the winner being able to cash in their prize which is a performance by Mark himself.

Mhorag said: “There are 65 residents at Crosslet House and he has 65 numbers. The winner can keep it for whenever they want.

“He will pipe or sing for them or for someone they choose.

“The proceeds will mean £5 for a gift for each resident at Crosslet House for Christmas.

“They need to pay for everything even their toiletries from their own allowance so hopefully this will give them a bit of a treat.”
