Money rolls in at Easter fundraiser

Rutherglen Reformer - - Gossip Girl -

Cathkin High pupils had an egg-cel­lent idea to raise funds for a worthy char­ity – while also mak­ing some­one’s day.

Pupils from the school’s Co-op­er­a­tive Coun­cil bought more than 6kg of mini choco­late eggs and made up beau­ti­fully wrapped in­di­vid­ual Easter pack­ages which they sold for £1. But the en­ter­pris­ing stu­dents also helped their class­mates make their some­one spe­cial feel smash­ing by of­fer­ing to de­liver the choco­late sur­prise.

Mr Tay­lor in the art de­part­ment cre­ated a yel­low sign, com­plete with bun­nies and chicks, which the coun­cil mem­bers used to adorn their stall in the street area ev­ery lunchtime. The money started rolling in and all the eggs were sold out within days.

All of the money raised will go to­wards buy­ing ac­tiv­i­ties or board games for a care home in Calder­wood, East Kil­bride, which helps peo­ple of all ages liv­ing with men­tal health prob­lems.

En­ter­prise Easter eggs added a lit­tle ro­mance to the school day
