Braw the Bear is guest star

Ayrshire Post - - Around Ayr -

A bear- y im­por­tant guest made a spe­cial ap­pear­ance at Castle­hill Church last Tues­day.

The na­tional mas­cot for The Boys’ Bri­gade, Braw the Bear, popped along to join pupils from Fore­hill Pri­mary choir – some of which are mem­bers of the 17th Ayr Boys’ Bri­gade.

The choir per­formed songs for se­nior mem­bers of the church and com­mu­nity.

Braw, one of BB Scot­land’s youngest mem­bers, joined the or­gan­i­sa­tion as part of its Year of Young Peo­ple initiative.

David Wat­son, head teacher of Fore­hill Pri­mary, said: “We are de­lighted to con­tinue the part­ner­ships we have with the con­gre­ga­tion and or­gan­i­sa­tions within Castle­hill Church.

“We have a large num­ber or young peo­ple in the school who are in­volved in youth or­gan­i­sa­tions such as the BBs and we shouldn’t un­der­es­ti­mate how much these or­gan­i­sa­tions con­trib­ute to the young per­son’s well­be­ing, char­ac­ter and de­vel­op­ment.”
