Bright socks and odd shoes or­der of the day

The Oban Times - - Districts -

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.
