Byline: A BIG-HEARTED schoolgirl BY JOHN JEFFAY

A BIG-HEARTED schoolgirl was so worried about her mum being stressed at work that she applied for a job at the same butcher's shop.

Caitlyn Yule, 10, sent a handwritten note to boss Bobby Schofield, offering to help her mum Sammy Drummond make burgers while another staff member was off.

Bobby, who runs Macdonald & Son, in Lochee, Dundee, was bowled over by the request.

Caitlyn penned the letter after overhearing her mum talking about her difficult day.

Sammy said: "I had a meltdown after work one day and she just went away in her room and came out with the letter and said, 'Could you give this to Bobby?" Bobby said he had to turn the offer down with a heavy heart.

He said: "A butcher shop is not ideal for a 10-year-old girl.

"The sentiment was greatly appreciated. She is such a nice girl and is in the shop on a daily basis. She hands out sweeties and puts a smile on everyone's face.
