Bright socks and odd shoes order of the day
KINLOCHLEVEN High School pupils have helped raise awareness of Down’s Syndrome Scotland and boosted the charity’s funds by £100 by wearing bright socks.
This year’s World Down’s Syndrome Day was marked by people wearing colourful socks.
Pupils made posters and distributed them around the school and made cakes which they sold to Kinlochleven Primary School and high school pupils.
The children sported a variety of colourful socks with some even wearing odd socks and shoes.
Money raised was given to Kay McDuff, a Kinlochleven mum whose son Mark has Down's Syndrome, to be added to funds raised through the community’s recent fundraising efforts.
Head teacher Rebecca Machin said: ‘It was a great, fun day. We are delighted to contribute to this fabulous community initiative. Mrs McDuff has been inspirational in the energy and enthusiasm she has put into fundraising for this cause. Well done to everyone involved.’
Kay and Mark McDuff receive the cheque for the charity.
