Rais­ing funds for school trip to Tanzania

The Arran Banner - - News -

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.

Well sup­ported

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.’
