Care home boosted by kind-hearted pupils
Generous Whifflet schoolchildren did their bit for elderly members of the community with a festive- themed extravaganza.
St Mary’s Primary hosted a Christmas jumper dinner and presentation assembly event.
School uniforms were ditched for the day as the kids dressed in their finest festive attire.
Primary Five and Six pupils used the entertaining occasion to present staff from the nearby Centenary care home with several presents and a cheque for £400.
The funds were raised during several school activities and gratefully accepted by care home activity co-ordinator Tracy O’Keefe and resident Helen McGoogan.
A St Mary’s Primary spokesperson said: “It was our pleasure to hand over a range of gifts and a £400 donation to Centenary care home.
“We’d like to thank everyone who donated.”
