Raising funds for school trip to Tanzania
A fundraising Christmas fair will help six Arran High School pupils on their way for a trip of a lifetime to Tanzania.
Last Saturday’s craft fair, which raised an excellent £856.84, was staged by the pupils planning to make an educational trip next summer. The six are Eilidh Hamill, Alice Kinniburgh, Daisy Urquhart-Dixon, James Smith, Kirk Inglis and Robbie Milton.
Parents, grandparents and friends were all drafted in to help with the fair which was also well supported by local craftsmen and women.
Along with the stalls, there were a tombola, Christmas raffle and an extensive book stall as well as refreshments and homebaking, which were on sale in the cafe.
Afterwards Daisy said: ‘Thank you all for such a fantastic day. We all really enjoyed hosting this fair and we hope to see you all at Santa’s Sparkle.’
