WaterAid mades a splash at Stonelaw!

With an ex­cel­lent track record in rais­ing funds for worth­while char­i­ties, Stonelaw em­barked upon another fund rais­ing mis­sion.

Led by So­phie O’Mail­ley and Gemma Grant and sup­ported by the ge­og­ra­phy depart­ment , a con­cert was or­gan­ised in sup­port of WaterAid. The girls were re­spon­si­ble for hir­ing the band (Par­don the Peo­ple), pro­vid­ing the food and drink and the sale of the tick­ets.

WaterAid is a char­ity that helps many de­vel­op­ing coun­tries across the world by bring­ing safe, clean wa­ter to the peo­ple and pro­vid­ing la­trines to each neigh­bour­hood. This cre­ates health­ier liv­ing con­di­tions to stop the spread of dis­eases.

Pupils through­out the school con­trib­uted in ev­ery way pos­si­ble. Stella Jones kindly do­nated home bak­ing to be sold at the event.

This in turn, raised more money for the cause. Fur­ther­more, Lawrence Hec­tor, Stu­art Wynne and James McClaf­ferty used their skills on light­ing to give a more pro­fes­sional fin­ish on the event. The con­cert was a huge suc­cess; in to­tal over £300 was raised for the cause. By the gen­eros­ity of both pupils and staff, WaterAid has truly ben­e­fited. As a whole, the event re­ceived fan­tas­tic feed­back from the pupils who at­tended and staff who su­per­vised.

Stonelaw High School are fully com­mited to help­ing those less for­tu­nate and this con­cert is an ex­am­ple of one of the many amaz­ing fund rais­ing events or­gan­ised by the pupils and staff.
