Jennie Godfrey, 65, from Dalkeith.
'As a student I had a slogan on my pinboard - Everyone should be a red head at least once. I have a ginger cockapoo, I choose it because of my hair colour and desperately wanted a curly one.'
'People make us out to have a temper and you live under the shadow of that.'
'In Africa, I was there long enough to get a tan - it took eight years! I ended up with a dog that looked like its owner. I can’t tell with people my age as they all dye their hair. They would be grey but I still have colour.'
'I have noticed they have a ginger meeting in Holland, we should do one here in Scotland.'
