Easter eggs for Mag­gie’s

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

James Ai­ton Pri­mary, Cam­bus­lang, have been col­lect­ing creme eggs and wrap­ping them in love to sup­port the Mag­gie’s Cen­tre char­ity.

Par­ents, grand­par­ents, staff and friends have been busy knitting lit­tle chicks cov­ers for the eggs for the last four weeks.

The cen­tre sells the eggs to gen­er­ate funds. This is the fourth year James Ai­ton has helped with this event.

This year pri­mary one pupils or­gan­ised col­lect­ing the eggs each day from the other classes in the school and, as al­ways, there was a fan­tas­tic re­sponse.

Mar­garet McFar­lane, a vol­un­teer from the Mag­gie’s Cen­tre, at­tended an as­sem­bly at the school where Grace, Maya, Paul and Jack­son from pri­mary one pre­sented her with the eggs.

Grace asked Mar­garet what the char­ity does? She replied: ”We help peo­ple with cancer in­clud­ing fam­ily and friends. We try to make them feel less sad by of­fer­ing com­fort.”

Maya asked:“What do you do with the eggs?”

Mar­garet said:”We put them on dis­play in the cen­tre so that peo­ple can buy them to raise funds.”

The school’s char­i­ties com­mit­tee will con­tinue to sup­port sev­eral char­i­ties through­out the year.

Well doneJames Ai­ton Pri­mary have done Mag­gie’s proud
