Cathkin pupils all so car­ing

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.
