WE have a new hero at The National. His name is Billy Henderson and on Saturday he helped deliver copies of our newspaper in Elgin.

Billy is a very special delivery boy, because even at his young age he is a cancer survivor.

He is a hero, too, to his father William, who said: “So proud of this wee man. From battling cancer to helping his dad promote an independent Scotland.

“He’s my inspiration, my hero.”

Thanks to Billy and his dad and all at Yes Elgin, 1000 free copies of the only newspaper that supports independence for Scotland were handed out to people in and around Elgin.

Yes Elgin set up a stall on Plainstones in Elgin on Saturday morning as well as delivering to households.

The final 200 copies were delivered in Aberlour just south of Elgin by Lee Philip, and we thank him for that heroic effort.

This was the third distribution by a Yes group following Airdrie for Independence and Yes Kirkcaldy.

We now have a list of Yes groups prepared to carry out similar distribution and next Saturday Yes Kelty will be undertaking the delivery. That will be followed by Yes Monifeith on December 15.

Any other group who would like to help us should send an e-mail to community@thenational.scot and we will reply as quickly as possible.
