Prin­ci­pal teacher Chris Wed­lock said:“St An­drew’s Hospice is our cho­sen Len­ten char­ity part­ner and the pupils took part in a spon­sored obstacle course to raise money for their amaz­ing work. The pupils and fam­i­lies al­ways demon­strate great care and love dur­ing our char­i­ta­ble fundrais­ers and this is an­other great ex­am­ple of the amaz­ing pos­i­tive im­pact our lo­cal com­mu­nity can have in the lives of oth­ers.”

St An­drew’s Hospice pro­vide spe­cial­ist pal­lia­tive care to peo­ple liv­ing with life-lim­it­ing ill­nesses.

“Scot­tish SPCA save thou­sands of do­mes­tic, farm and wild an­i­mals ev­ery year, while their res­cue and re­hom­ing cen­tre vets and staff look af­ter, re­ha­bil­i­tate, re­lease and find new homes for thou­sands more.”
