A CHILDREN’S charity fundraiser was cancelled after it emerged the organiser was a convicted rapist.
Locals were horrified when a Facebook post revealed Paul McMaster, 40, had been jailed for five years for a shocking sex attack on a disabled woman.
The fiend was planning an event at Vogrie Park, Midlothian, next month in aid of Cash for Kids.
He had organised it under the name of his wife’s firm, East Lothian Bouncy Castles.
But after his vile past was disclosed online, the fun day was called off.
McMaster, of Prestonpans, East Lothian, was caged in 1994 for raping a severely disabled woman — then urinating on his victim as she cowered on the floor.
Last night, a source in his home town said: “I was shocked when I found out about this.
“He has been involved in school discos and drives a taxi minibus. It’s disgusting.”

McMaster couldn’t be reached for comment.
