WEATHER presenter Sean Batty is calling on communities to get behind an annual children’s charity appeal.

The Big Scottish Breakfast for the STV Children’s Appeal is a fundraising event supporting children and young people affected by poverty.

With the event due to be held on October 5, local schools, businesses and sports teams are being encouraged to get together for fun breakfast events.

Paisley man Sean, who presents weather forecasts on STV, said: “The Big Scottish Breakfast got off to a great start last year, with breakfast events across the area raising money for Scotland’s children.

“I had lots of fun getting involved and it wasn’t just a case of eating croissants and toast – most fundraisers had me doing spin classes, zumba or dancing to weather-themed songs.

“This year, we’re determined to go even bigger and better and I’d love to see schools, businesses and groups in this area join in with their own Big Scottish Breakfast event.”
