Cathkin kids doing their bit for hospice
classes had excellent discussions on equality and injustice.
Mrs Hill, team leader of the expedition, was thrilled with the fundraising abilities of the pupils in S2.
She said:“This year, the pupils have excelled themselves and have raised a staggering £2991.75.
“This event is now in its seventh year with the pupils from Cathkin High having raised over £12,000 for St Andrew’s Hospice.”
The top fund-raisers included Rebecca Stewart in 2K2 who raised a whopping £155 and Sophie Bestwick, in 2M1, who raised an amazing £142.62.
“Well done to all pupils and staff who took part.”
School liaison officer Lucy Killean thanked Cathkin pupils for their efforts.
St Andrew’s Hospice is an Airdriebased independent charity providing care and treatment for those living with life- threatening illnesses.
It provides a free service for adults in North and South Lanarkshire and strives to meet the needs of all, regardless of religious, cultural and ethnic background.
In April of this year, St Andrew’s launched an £8million capital appeal to reconfigure and refurbish the hospice to make it fit for the future.
