Cathkin pupils all so caring
Cathkin High’s S5 and S6 pupils have shown their caring, sharing side by volunteering to become St Andrew’s Hospice Ambassadors.
This is a scheme St. Andrew’s Hospice started in 2013, which aims to give senior pupils who are eager to go that ‘extra mile’ for the charity the recognition they deserve.
This year 26 senior students are taking part in the programme.
As an ambassador pupils are asked to visit the hospice once a year, attend fundraisers and help raise awareness of the hospice’s work.
In Cathkin High, these pupils have been working hard to raise money for the hospice.
In October, they held a coffee afternoon, raising £170. On top of the £132.87 they raised at the S2 parents evening, the students also plan to raise more funds at specially organised events in 2017.
Some pupils also ran the St Andrew’s 6K in September this year, again raising awareness of the hospice.
Their fundraising could also see them awarded either a bronze, silver or a gold level as part of their volunteering programme.
