Char­i­ties boosted by events

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Advertising Feature -

Pupils at Buchanan High have again showed sup­port for two of their favourite char­i­ties by tak­ing part in two an­nual projects.

They par­tic­i­pated in the an­nual “world’s big­gest cof­fee morn­ing” in aid of Macmil­lan can­cer sup­port, and raised a grand to­tal of £455.

As well as sell­ing cakes and re­fresh­ments to par­ents, staff and fel­low pupils at the Coat­bridge school, the group also boosted their fundrais­ing to­tal by or­gan­is­ing raf­fles, a tombola and a game of “cake bingo”.

Buchanan pupils then joined forces with younger friends from Drumpark Pri­mary for their an­nual Christ­mas shoe­box project – and filled a record 255 boxes.

They filled boxes with items in­clud­ing toi­letries, sta­tionery, clothes and toys for the an­nual Blythswood Care ap­peal, to be dis­trib­uted to un­der­priv­i­leged peo­ple over­seas.

Head teacher Michael McGin­ley said: “It was a plea­sure to watch the pupils work tire­lessly and with such en­thu­si­asm.”
