Kind-hearted Lennox Castle employee Mike Regan was planning to put his own life on the line to help refugees from the Bosnian war.

The health worker had volunteered to take vital supplies to a Slovenian camp and was hoping local people would help donate items such as toiletries, food and medical supplies.

He said: “We’re heading to a camp on the border of Bosnia in Slovenia. It’s one of the camps that hasn’t received much publicity or much attention, and they are crying out for stuff.

“We want people to fill showboxes full of items and hand them into us. It’s not that expensive but is of great value to the people in the camps.”
