Water lot of cash raised by Stonelaw pupils!
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.
