Kil­mory back­pack project plea

The Arran Banner - - News -

Peo­ple across the is­land are be­ing urged to help the Kil­mory pri­mary school back­pack project.

The Mary’s Meals ini­tia­tive helps chil­dren in Malawi by send­ing them re­cy­cled school bags, polo shirts, skirts and shorts to let them get the most out of their ed­u­ca­tion.

The P5-P7 class is or­gan­is­ing the project with the sup­port of the whole school. As well as send­ing their old school bags to Malawi, the Kil­mory chil­dren are fill­ing them with pen­cils, pens, crayons, erasers, sharp­en­ers, rulers, pen­cil cases, notepads, tooth­paste, tooth­brushes, tow­els, bars of soap, spoons, small balls, shorts or skirts, T-shirts or dresses, san­dals or flip flops for chil­dren aged four to 12 years.

All items do­nated can be handed into Kil­mory pri­mary school or given to pupils, staff and par­ents. All items are needed by Fri­day Septem­ber 15, af­ter which they will be sorted into ages and sent to Mary’s Meals.

P5 teacher Eil­idh McNeish said: ‘We would like to thank ev­ery­one for their sup­port so far, but there is still time to do­nate to the ap­peal, which will change many lives.’
