St Columbkille’s pupils help hospice
Kind St Columbkille’s pupils overcame some obstacles to raise money for a good cause recently – and collected £2,217.15 for St Andrew’s Hospice.
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.
The school also recently welcomed the Scottish Animal Welfare Charity (SPCA) to talk about their Prevention Through Education Programme.
Chris added:“These interactive sessions helped our pupils to gain an understanding of how they can be ‘responsible animal citizens’
“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.”
