Easter eggs for Maggie’s
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
