Coll pupils raise £550 for Comic Re­lief

The Oban Times - - Districts -

THE 11 pupils at Ari­nagour Pri­mary School on the isle of Coll have raised more than £ 550 for Comic Re­lief.

School staff said: ‘That’s more than £ 50 per child. For a tiny school on a tiny is­land, we are so proud of our pupils’ ef­forts and would like to thank the lo­cals who were so gen­er­ous, as well as the par­ents who sup­ported many as­pects of our fundrais­ing.

‘We started with a non-uni­form day on Fri­day March 24. We then had gen­er­ous do­na­tions of cakes and raf­fle prizes for a huge bake sale on Satur­day March 25. The pupils ar­ranged all the ac­tiv­i­ties them­selves, in­clud­ing ad­ver­tis­ing, let­ters to par­ents, sweep­stakes, sales of mer­chan­dise and bak­ing.

‘The chil­dren were spon­sored by lo­cals to do jobs and have put out rub­bish, pot­ted plants, walked dogs, re­cy­cled and gen­er­ally helped peo­ple. Some were also spon­sored to take part in a mini tal­ent show.’
