Money rolls in at Easter fundraiser
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
