A bust of Sir Walter Scott is part of a “significant legacy” that Jim McCallum (pictured) and wife Kath have promised to the Abbotsford Trust in memory of daughter Shirley. The bust used to hang in Selkirk’s Fleece Hotel.

In recognition of their support, the trust will name a lecture room in Abbotsford House after Shirley, who was from Selkirk and died from Hodgkin’s lymphoma aged 25.
