Mum's joy as readers dig deep for wee Daniel.

Big-hearted Daily Record readers have given a hero mum's stricken son a birthday bonus.

Bravery award winner Veronica Hynd appealed for help to send her son, Daniel, to the world-famous Peto Institute in Hungary.

But she hadn't counted on the people power of Scotland's Champion and has been overwhelmed with donations and offers of help.

Daniel, who has cerebral palsy, was two on Monday.

And Veronica revealed the best present was news of the Peto fund topping pounds 4000 - pounds 1000 more than her target.

Veronica was eight months pregnant with Daniel when she saved three students from a blazing car.

She received the first Daily Record David Dunn bravery award in memory of the have-a-go hero who was killed in a bank raid.

Following our story on Veronica's hopes for Daniel, readers sent a stream of donations.

Veronica, 28, of Tranent, East Lothian, said: "A lot of the money has come from complete strangers.

"I have writer's cramp because of the number of thank-you letters I have sent.

Veronica and husband John, 28, hope to take Daniel to the Budapest specialist centre early next year.
