Fern­hill kids give egg-stra

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Pupils at Fern­hill School col­lected 176 Easter eggs to do­nate to chil­dren less for­tu­nate than them­selves.

Some of the eggs were col­lected by a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang Food­bank while oth­ers were taken to a food­bank in Air­drie, where many of the pupils from Fern­hill live.

Mrs Steven­son, who co­or­di­nated the ac­tiv­ity, said: “Orig­i­nally we had a tar­get of 140 eggs, which we felt was ad­ven­tur­ous given the rel­a­tively small num­ber of pupils at Fern­hill School. How­ever, the pupils have once again shown tremen­dous gen­eros­ity and have ex­ceeded our ex­pec­ta­tion once again.

“Our school con­tin­u­ally looks for ways in which to ex­tend kind­ness and char­ity within our lo­cal com­mu­nity and it never ceases to amaze me how well pupils re­spond each and ev­ery time they are asked.”
