Scotland Family Hero - Charlie Kean

Charlie lives in Dundee and over the past 14 years has raised over half a million pounds for children and families who are in hospital fighting cancer through work with his Children's Fund.

He takes the children to the theatre, organises other events and has donated a whole host of things to the new emergency department of the local hospital.  He never asks for anything in return and spends at least 2 days a week with the children he raises money for and without him there would be no games consoles or televisions in the hospital to take children’s mind off the pain while they are recovering.
