A WOMAN who lost triplets last year is behind plans for a special fundraising concert, which is to be held in Lanark.

Catriona Buchanan (31) and husband Jim (39) were devastated when, during last summer, she lost her three children after going into labour at just 23 weeks.

Now the couple, who live in Douglas and are both members of Coalburn Silver Band, are hoping many people turn out for the band’s charity concert, in aid of the Stillbirth and Neo-natal Death Society (SANDS), in St Nicholas Church on May 11.
