Thank you to everyone who has sent a message to the girls both individually and to our fb/twitter pages. We would also like to say thanks to all who were at the scene to provide a warm car, warm clothes and support to the girls! Special thank you has to be given to the unknown 'action man' who was at the bus within minutes to rip off the sun roof and help the girls climb out!
Thank you also to Stewartry Sirens and their coach Sandy Currie for offering their help.
Thanks to driver Ronnie Thornhill for Stagecoach Dumfries who kindly drove all the girls back into Dumfries, also to the passengers on this bus for offering whatever they could.
Finally thanks to Princess kebab in Dumfries for providing the girls with a VERY generous amount of food, for the little money we managed to scrape together!
